Be it a literal fruit beginning to emerge or a fetus beginning to grow in a woman’s womb, the labor behind caring for the fruit before it even existed is often unseen or even underappreciated.
That labor demands intention, persistence, and faith; there are factors beyond the control of the one who plants and cares that must be just right for the fruit to be formed.
The structures of society, the internet, and social media grooms us to expect instant gratification. But many essential things in life demand persistent work and faith to bear fruit.
Bearing fruit requires both work and faith. True love is a love that embraces the work and keeps the faith.
Luke 1:39-56. Blessed is the fruit of your womb
