God calls us to produce good fruit with our lives. But do we know what that really means?
ABOUT THIS PARABLE
- Concept: A hungry and weary traveler sees beautiful orchards in the distance. As the road forks, he takes the well-traveled path. But each of the orchards he encounters on the path are a disappointment. Should he go back and take the path less traveled?
- Story Origin: Original
- Setting: A country Road
- According to the bible, the way to life is the narrow, less traveled path.
