Reap the Fruit of Unfailing Love

"Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground;  for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers righteousness on you."  Hosea 10:12

Growing fruit involves a lot of hard work.  First you must plow the ground and expose the earth underneath - bringing the nutrients up to the surface.  Then you must plant a seed or seedling in the correct way and at the correct depth.  And then you must constantly provide the correct amount of water and fertilizer and in some cases protect the tree against certain pests.  Finally growing fruit involves patience - in many cases it takes years for a fruit tree to become established and produce a single piece of fruit.

It is the same with our life.  If we are to "reap the fruit of unfailing love" we must first rototill our personality and bring up to the surface our good and righteous traits and work through the rocks that would stop us from being Christ like.  Then we must sow seeds (our actions) and do what is right in every and all situations.  Most importantly we must seek the Lord - He is our water of Life, our nutrition and protector against all pests.  Only then will we overflow with Christ-like love .......... remember Love never fails.

Let us try to live our life so that we will be like a fruit tree overflowing with the fruit of unfailing love.
