31 Days to Fruitful Living Day 12

The awful truth is that it could take up to five years for you to see any fruit on a tree.  This requires patience.  It’s slow, but sure work.  We must remain steady and strong. Remember that fruit needs to ripen.  Mature fruit will be much more fruitilicious.  Stay the course, and don’t give up too soon.  Your fruit is coming.


“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good.

At the right time we will harvest a good crop

if we don’t give up, or quit.

Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance,

let us work for the benefit of all,

starting with the people closest to us

in the community of faith.”

Galatians 6:9-10, MSG


Q4U:  Do you have any tips on how to wait patiently for the good stuff God is doing to ripen?  I could use some advice on this topic!  Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Come back tomorrow for Day 13 of “31 Days to Fruitful Living.” We will chat about how to sow love.  I may have a black thumb, but I am determined to learn how to cultivate my spiritual life.
