“...whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39

I like revisiting the exemplary story of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, who was imprisoned in Auschwitz in February 1941. He and his community had helped to house and feed 3000 Polish refugees, of which 2000 were Jews. He also broadcast illegally on radio and wrote about the atrocities of the Nazis. In Auschwitz, he would give away his meagre rations, pray over the sick and comfort those in need. He was beaten and tortured for his faith, singled out for hard labor until he passed out. 
In July 1941, three prisoners escaped and 10 random men from the same cell were chosen to be starved as punishment. When Franciszek Gajowniczek’s name was called, he cried out, “My wife! My children!” Father Kolbe stepped forward and said: “I am a Catholic priest from Poland; I would like to take his place because he has a wife and children.” Father Kolbe and the other 9 prisoners were brought to an underground bunker stripped naked. One by one, they starved to death. One witness said that there was never any urine in the slop bucket when he came to clean it, for they drank it all. He would hear them singing and praising God led by the priest. Father Kolbe was one of a few who survived after two weeks. They were all injected with carbolic acid and burned unceremoniously. 
Father Kolbe was beatified on October 1971 and canonized in October 1982. Both times, Gajowniczek was a guest in the Vatican.  This man Saint Maximilian Kolbe gave his life for, declared, “so long as I have breath in my lungs, I would consider it my duty to tell people about the heroic act of love by Maximilian Kolbe." How about us? One man took our place, and the eternal punishment for our sins. Are we so grateful that we would tell everyone who would listen about the amazing love of Jesus Christ?

Peaches, drizzled with honey, and ready to be popped on the grill 🤗🤤🍑
....
..
I was noticing the other day how many times the Bible makes references to fruit and so I did a quick search on it. There are a lot of references to it, actually, especially in terms of God being the Farmer or of people needing to pay attention to the possible and actualized outcomes of their choices and actions and words. There’s one that has really stuck with me:
....
..
In Matthew, chapter 7, we’re advised to be aware of false prophets. “You will know them by their fruits,” it says.
....
..
When we’re questioning what we should do about something, or if someone is good for us, or a cause or political agenda is the right one, look at the fruits. ....
..
Galatians tells us, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” ....
..
And so, too, the outcomes of the people we join ourselves to, the causes we champion, the actions and words we contemplate, should be the same as the Spirit.
....
..
If they aren’t? Then it’s time to make a change and align ourselves with people, ideas, and missions that grow the tastiest, juiciest, most delicious fruits. ....
..
When I became a Christian, I was forced to fundamentally change a lot of opinions I held and the ways in which I interacted with everyone, family, friend or stranger. It wasn’t easy. But I knew that if I was going to be Christian at all, then I needed to be one all the way. I wanted the fruits of my new life to be something good and useful, something God might smile about. It’s harder this way, but it’s consistent and joyful and right. There is still plenty of pruning and shaping that needs to happen, but the fruits, I think, are getting sweeter. Just like these delicious summer peaches.

Love is a big theme throughout the bible and it can be so easy to forget that when we live in a world full of hate
