Proverbs 11:30

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise.

As we grow in the kingdom, as we show the righteousness of Jesus in our lives, so we become a tree of life, a resource where others can find life. The word 'captures' here is too strong; 'gathers' would be better. As folk come to the tree of life, we gather them around us, growing and developing a community that is about more than just the transient and ephemeral encounters of social media, but lasting, meaningful, covenant relationships that build the kingdom of God and endure.
