Molly’s Minute: Planting Seeds, Growing Fruit

March 8, 2023

I heard a story once about two farmers who were planting their very first crop.

They were so excited as they tilled the soil and planted the seeds, talking about all the different kinds of vegetables they’d grow.

But when the harvest came, the farmers saw that all they had was…


They had thought they would grow everything—squash, tomatoes, green beans. But those weren’t the seeds they planted. So, that wasn’t what they grew.

What seeds are you planting today? And what will they grow into?

Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…” These are the kinds of fruits the Holy Spirit can help us produce in our lives.

But if we want to see fruit growing, we have to plant the seeds for it.

Which fruit of the Spirit do you want to see more of in your life? And what seeds can you plant today to help it grow?
