To pick an avocado off a tree, you attach a coffee can to a long pole and raise it up under the avocado and then you jiggle the fruit. If it is ripe it will come off the tree easily. If it is not yet ripe, don’t be rough with it because you don’t want to bruise the fruit. So also in sharing Christ, if the person is not ready, don’t bruise the fruit.
