My Dear Child,
Plants are wonderful. For example, think of the seed, which is a grain that carries the life of each plant inside. If a seed falls into the soil and has the right conditions around it, it can grow strong and bear much fruit, but if its environment is not good, it does not grow and die.
Similarly, when we take care of the gospel seed which is God’s Word and allow it to grow in our hearts as we study it every day, believe it, and obey it, we too can grow and bear fruit for all eternity. Matthew 13:1-9
With love, Dad/Mom
