Moments of Devotion

There is nothing like good fruit. Good fruit harmonizes with the senses and produces a euphoria that sends one searching for that same satisfying taste. In order to produce good fruit one must first plant their seed in fertile ground. Second the fruit must be watered and protected from the cold so that the harvest won’t be destroyed. Third, we must remove the clutter and debris that may cause harm to the fruit. In essence, we also must take care of the spiritual fruit in our lives. Spiritual fruit has to be planted in the spirit of the believer and cultivated so that it can grow and produce a harvest that will bless the lives of others. A bearer of good fruit will show kindness when kindness is not shown. A bearer of good fruit has peace in the midst of turmoil and patience when anxiety is all around. A bearer of good fruit will remain humble when there is a chance to boast. A bearer of good fruit will love because God said so. Take some time today to examine your fruit. If your fruit is good then share it with the world. If your fruit is bad then it is time reconnect with the vinedresser (God) and allow him to prune away the dead areas in your life so that your spirit man can be revived and you can bear good fruit.

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. Matthew 12:33
