New growth is always tender and tentative. As we branch out in life and try something new, it may or may not survive the test of time. But we either continue to grow or begin to die. I recently watched two old grapefruit trees we had in our front yard lose the battle. They kept putting out new growth every year, but overall they lost more than they gained and ultimately they had to be removed. As we grow older, do we constantly try to gain more than we lose? I talked to an accountant last night who is as old or older than I am, but he is still working full-time at his profession. He may be failing to make new growth faster than he is losing the old.
