Motivational Monday – What Kind of Fruit are You? – March 16, 2015

on March 16, 2015

Galatians 5: 22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Beautiful isn’t it.  The fruits of the Spirit.  The attributes of Jesus.  But as for me, there are definitely days I feel very far from being a crisp, unblemished, flavorful “fruit”.  In fact many days I feel more like a bruised, overripe, rotten banana that has been laying about to long!

I can never expect to be perfect, as Jesus was, none of us can.  However I’m thinking maybe if I began each morning reflecting on these wonderful attributes, the ones that Jesus so beautifully displayed as an example to all of us, then maybe I would start to echo some of them a little more often.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we all strived to reflect even a glimpse of the “fruits of the spirit”.  Easy, no absolutely not!  In fact this morning my fruit of patience was more like that rotten banana I was speaking of earlier.  But maybe if we all tried just a little bit harder, put forth a little more effort and took time to reflect each day on these attributes daily.  Then maybe, just maybe they will become inscribed into our hearts.  Just think of what a more wonderful day (and life) it could be.  Have a great week!

Proverbs 27:19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.


Would love to hear from you!
