Taming The Wild
May27 2005 English 32min
The fruit of wild trees is not edible. For a tree to bear good fruit, it must be grafted. There is wildness in common people. Changing it makes them well placed for divine service. The imprisoned soul yearns for the heavens. Creation serves Man, but who does he serve? His material being. When his coffin is nailed shut and placed in a hole, his final position will be realized: a skeleton, then dust. O Man, change your wildness into good manners. It brings familiarity. Darkness leaves the face. The Lord is happy. His servant gains here, and hereafter.
