"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22

plant physiology is the key theme for bio class this next coupla weeks, and prof. spalding was talking about how fruit = modified ovary walls, as how seeds = mature/developed ovules.
basically, the meat/fruit, along with ther pericarp (outer surface of fruit) protects the seed from harm. and, as we have all learnt in our p6 science classes, it aids in (animal) dispersal.


i draw the parallel.

the nine fruits of the Spirit are virtues that ground us in God, that grant our soul shielding from the batterings of the winds that seek to shake our faith, to pry loose the hands that stretch out, seeking God.
just as cherry-meat provides that same protection. :]

and the manifested fruits of the Spirit are agents of dispersal.
"faith without actions is dead."
we MUST walk our talk, lest it be fake.
for the proof of the passion is in the pursuit.

do you really believe?

my bio class, i liiiike :]
