CULTIVATE THE FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT

This Week's Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled "Spirit," opens with Jesus' parable of the sower and the seed (Matt. 13:1–9, Responsive Reading). Immediately we are immersed in distinguishing among four types of soil: wayside, stony, thorny, and good.

A farmer in Judea would have known how difficult it would be to get the seed into "good" soil. Today in this region the terrain continues to be hilly and rocky. Farming is done on small strips of land without fences. Between the strips of land are well-worn, three-foot-wide paths that look like paved sidewalks.
