Question: When the Bible speaks of fruit, does it mean talents, skills, or what comes out of you as far as words, ideas, etc. I heard someone say that the Bible says you will know them by their fruits. Does that mean soul winning and all the above?

Answer: Fruit is whatever a person's life produces. This may include words, actions, qualities of character, and the impact your life has on other people. Paul wrote that when the Spirit of God is allowed to operate freely in the life of a believer, He will produce the fruit of 'love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control' Galatians 5:22-23).
