My heart has such compassion and love for a struggling unbeliever. I just want to wrap my arms around them and tell of Christ’s love and that he can help and save them. My fruit appears to be so inviting and lovely to them. But what about my other fruity side. The one that comes out when that driver cut’s you off as your running late for work or that pushy lady that pushed ahead of you in the ticket line the same line you had been at for ½ hour? Do you outwardly give your Christian smile at them (shiny outward fruit), while inwardly seething with anger and frustration (rotten and spoiled inward fruit)? I do sometimes, honestly a lot more as of late.
Lord; Help me to be the freshest fruit of your spirit that I can be. Ripen my heart and mind with your longsuffering spirit. May I have that tasty shine that only the fruit of PATIENCE brings… Lord Help me to be the fruitiest Christian I can be.
Love another fruity child of God.
