Fruit of Patience

Olive tree

While reading my son’s science lesson, I came across a fact about the Olive tree. It is one tree whose first fruit appears after at least 30 years. However, once it starts giving fruit, it continues for centuries.

In today’s world where humans are almost always seeking quick gratification, many lessons can be derived by observing the habits of living beings that are not humans. If you are up for a good cause, it is so important to realize that results might not come instantly. In fact, it is possible that results might not come in your life! But rest assured that when they do come, they will benefit generations! And hence for such causes, it is better to think of oneself as a link in a long long chain than simply analyzing the impact of our efforts only within a few decades of our lives.
