Increase your influence by serving others.
Fruit trees are endowed with seeds that produce fruits for the benefit of others. They do not eat their own fruit. Instead, they serve others with it. So, fruit trees fulfill their purpose by serving others.
Like fruit trees, man was created by God to be fruitful. But while we are all gifted, not many of us make it fruitful. That is, we don’t often serve others with it. For example, a person may be gifted in singing, but would never sing for others. When you are the only one who enjoys what your gift produces, then you are not fruitful.
Becoming fruitful is key because it attracts God’s favor. Jesus said, “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit”.
