I've been pondering this year's resolutions for a while now, and while I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to make my goals, I am closing in on the mark.
Relief Society this week is studying the parables in Matthew 13. I find my mind drawn back to the parable of the sower again and again as I study this afternoon. The good earth brings forth good fruit (Matt 13:23). By their fruits shall ye know them (Matt 7:16-20). The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (Gal. 5:22-23).
So, my question became, "What are my fruits?" Do I see these things in myself? In my life? (Do I even know what all of these things are?)
How do I get more of these things?
When I can answer that question I think I will be ready to write my goals.
