A fruit tree may be teeming with blossoms,
but if it doesn’t produce fruit it is barren.
A lamp may be studded with diamonds,
but if it doesn’t give light it is worthless.
And a faith that doesn’t result in good works is dead.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
the fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
And the fruit of service is peace.
