The Pomegranate:

 

 

 

"And Saul tarried in the uttermost part of Gibeah under a pomegranate tree which is in Migron: and the people that were with him were about six hundred men;" - I Samuel 14:2

 

 

The name pomegranate comes from the Latin word meaning “the fruit of many seeds.” The pomegranate originated in Persia (Iran-Iraq).  While Saul and his men are resting in a pomegranate orchard, Jonathan is fighting the battle his father should have been fighting. The pomegranate reminds us not to tarry, not to be lazy, when there is work to be done – not to sleep when we should be out about the business of God.
