“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,”
Galatians 5:22 ESV
Seeds are truly amazing in that they have the ability to grow into an adult of the same species. All of the necessary information is programmed within its structure, but they need to be watered and nourished. Likewise, in a more abstract sense, we humans are sowing “seeds” all the time as we interact with others, so we must be sure that they are the kinds of seeds we want to develop into adults of that “species”. And the fruits of our labors require attention and care to produce maximum results.
