“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise wins souls.” (Pr 11:30)
All fruit also contains a seed. The apple is both the byproduct of an apple tree and the inception of another. Righteousness begets righteousness. If you want to help other people turn to God, you must first do so yourself.
The fruit of a Christian life becomes the tree of life that wins souls. We cannot expect to convert others when we aren’t all in ourselves. Faithful people lead people to faith. It is the only system that really works.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.” (Matt 23:15)
