Yesterday, I taught in our New Members class at church and gave them a visual quiz. I showed them 2 apples: one real and one fake. I asked them to tell me which apple was real. Can you tell from the picture below?
It’s hard to see the difference, isn’t it? Although they both look good, only the apple on the left is real.
My point was that we don’t want to give out fake Spiritual fruit at our churches or anywhere else we represent ourselves as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Fake fruit is only about looking “Christian” before others, but when they “taste” to discover your substance, all they get is a mouth full of dry styrofoam or plastic!
Real fruit is full of flavor and nutritional value to benefit other people.
