Tending the fruit

It might be helpful in this analogy if it was noted that the fruit farmer does not just plant and then ignore until harvest but must constantly care for the trees or bushes by trimming, getting rid of pests, protecting against harsh weather conditions, etc.- One does not just introduce spiritual concepts and then walk away--they, too must be tended and nurtured.
