Be Ye Fructiforous

I love it! Can you guess the meaning? The “fruit” word is the stem or tip- off. Yes, it means fruitful. The Bible uses it many times in the context of multiplying. It was God’s best advice to Noah; well, if not him who else? Much is said about this in Genesis.

What would this have to do with those of us; neither married or else beyond “that age” (we are not all biblical wonders) of procreation and privelege? The word continues refering to Joseph as a “fruitful bough”. Isa 10:18 “And shall consume the glory of his forest and fruitful field”- then refering to the “seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field”

Acts 14:17 expands upon the concept as it says; ” Nevertheless He left not himself without witness, in that He did good and gave us rain and fruitful seasons”; Paul, speaking of the living God.

No one of us can strive to be less, however, than fructiforous as described in Col 1:10, that makes it totally applicable to all; “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord with all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowlege of God.” God’s advice to mankind.

    At first impression, the word sounded fruity and delicious. An addition to my vocabulary. Thank you.
    If it is God’s command, we must do it wherever we are, in every station of life… and He will help us if we are determined to obey. May He be glorified.
