Gospel Fruit

Loved this thought from a friend:

The "fruit" (Gospel Fruit) is primarily internal, changing the heart. When it comes to affecting others, it is only secondarily external. It is of course external in how you conduct your life, but not so when it comes to whether you will see others welcome the truth. Did Mormon have "fruit?" Measured by the external standard and during his lifetime, it was only his son and a small handful of others. But certainly he had "fruit." The same would be true of Nephi. Most of those in his own family rejected him.

If we abide in the True Vine, we can then bear fruit.
