Your faith is strong like a high tower built on a sturdy rock.
All things will parish but your faith will remain.
Tend your faith, like you tend your garden.
This tree I gave you is to be watered regularly.
Guard it with love
Wait with hope.
For if you cannot maintain faith,
but maintain your wealth,
can you call it a good life?
For a good life is like this:
It is like a man watering, and watching his tree grow every hour, and every day.
His watch is on the tree constantly, ceaselessly, and most intently.
And though the tree doesn’t seem like it is growing,
he does not doubt,
because he sees it with the eyes of faith.
