A round large fruit with a thick orange-skinned rind, dry flesh,
many seeds, cooked and eaten as a vegetable or in sweet
dishes, a pumpkin. Its fruitfulness is limited only by one’s
culinary skills and imagination, not in its unassuming
appearance. For the vision locked within its many seeds also
contains yet another harvest to plant, water and gather in
God’s Word, full of vitalizing absolute truth, is the premier
vision of fruitfulness. Planted in our lives to bring forth the fruit
of His Spirit in which to nurture us to flourish, it also contains
multiple provisions for the benefit of others. So plentiful the
yield, it has the capacity within itself to reconcile the whole
world unto Himself, for His Kingdom and for His acclaim. It’s
the richness of His grace. It’s what our hope is made of. A
seed of truth, planted by one, watered by another and
increased only by God.
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that
watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
-- 1 Corinthians 3 verses 6 & 7

King James Version
And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an
hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He
that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the
power of God.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall
speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely
come, it will not tarry.
