Food for Thought (Intriguing Picture)

A few years ago, I taught 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?

food for thought
Which apple is real? When we give other people real Spiritual fruit, not fake fruit, only then can they taste and see that our Lord is good.

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.

My prayer for all of us is that we continue to grow in Spiritual fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. God is glorified as we grow in His love, knowledge of His word, and apply it to our lives daily.

We will then be full of juicy Spiritual fruit so that others can taste and see that our Lord is good!

I encourage you to chew on that as food for thought today.

Be Blessed with Health, Healing, and Wholeness,
