The Fruit Basket

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

Don’t we just love the look of this fruit basket? Yummy!

I love fruit but can be lazy when I have to cut, peel or core certain fruit. It’s so easy to grab a banana or apple and munch on my way to work, but that sweet pineapple with it’s thorny skin and prickly crown may just sit in the basket for a long time! It’s easier just to buy the ready-diced  selection from the supermarket.

Why all this chatter about fruit? I want to draw an analogy with another basket of fruit; the fruit of the Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

We can’t be picky with the fruit of the Spirit. We can’t choose joy but then refuse to be patient or kind. We can’t opt for peace but refuse to be gentle, and there are no ready made  options!

What’s missing in your fruit basket?

Have a fruitful week! 🍏🍉🍌🍒🍍
