Bro. James explores Paul's message to the Philippians (4:14 - 4:17) "I desire fruit that may abound to your account". Jesus' message regarding "the true vine" referenced (John 15). The traits of the palm tree are mentioned - leaves shaped to withstand wind and bark damage does not kill the palm tree because nourishment is conveyed from roots to tree through the center of the tree rather than the bark. We can flourish, as a palm tree, by relying on the Lord's grace and not become damaged by our carnal environment. Ohm's Law mentioned along with John 3:30 - He must increase; I must decrease. Other scriptures mentioned: Colossians 1:10, Psalms 92:12, Matthew 13:8, Galatians 5:25.
