And Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is
as if a man should scatter seed on the ground.
He sleeps and rises night and day,
and the seed sprouts and grows;
he knows not how.
The earth produces by itself,
first the blade, then the ear,
then the full grain in the ear.”
— Matthew 4:26-28
Forget about trying to see the fruit.
That’s the way the kingdom is.
We often do not know what God does
with our service.
We plant the seed,
go to bed,
and, while we sleep,
God germinates the seed
so that life grows and eventually produces a full harvest.
Then God Himself reaps for His own glory.
We simply need
about trying to see the fruit of our service
It does not matter if we ever see it.
We are called to take the light and let it shine,
then let God do with it whatever He pleases.

I do not see Jefe growing, but he's gone from 1.2 to 5 pounds in four short months in front of my very eyes.
the Kingdom of God
is like Jefe.
