The big end of the branch is always toward the vine. The fruit comes on the little end. When we daily direct the big end of our lives towards Christ, and his Word, an amazing thing takes place. The fruit comes on the little end. It will come in a way that will let us know that it was because of him and in spite of us.
Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
2 Corinthians 1:11
