1) Notice that every seed sown in good grown brought forth fruit. Some more than others. So, as Christians we will multiply ourselves by teaching the word and creating more Christians. This should be our goal! So, get busy and go sow the seed!
2) Then, recently, I was teaching my 4th and 5th graders and I had a different thought. We are to bear fruit. The Bible defines the Christian's fruit this way: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23) So, if we think of our fruit as being this type of fruit – based upon our actions – then think for a minute about fruit. Each fruit has within itself a seed. Every time we show love, joy or any of these others, we are planting a seed of faith in others.
So, next time you have opportunity, TEACH and show those fruits of the spirit! Let's be fruitful and multiply!!!!!
