Do you know how cranberries are harvested? When the fruit is ripe, the cranberry bog is flooded with water. As the water covers the bush, the ruby red berries separate from the bush and float to the surface where they are gathered and distributed to cranberry lovers around the country.

When the flood waters of trouble and trials sweep over your soul, what is the result? Is fruit "meet for the Master’s use" released to bless and meet the needs of the hungry world around you?
