Monday's Message of Hope

Yummy Spiritual Fruit!
Monday, May 24, 2021 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

Last week we talked about living and walking in the Spirit. Thankfully, we don’t have to try to figure out how to do it. The apostle Paul gave his brothers and sisters in Christ wisdom, revelation, and practical application through the many epistles he wrote. Let’s start our journey in Galatians:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness [meekness], self-control . . . (Galatians 5:22–23a, NKJV)

In the natural, growing fruit takes time. The root systems need to be established, the ground requires adequate water supplies, and the plants and/or trees must be pruned. And that’s only the minimum essentials to grow the yummy fruit we all enjoy eating. Rarely do we think of the time, energy, and finances farmers must invest in order to produce a crop that satisfies the palate of some very picky eaters.

We can apply the same principles to growing fruit in our own spirits. Our roots need to be established in the Word of God. The various seeds we plant in our hearts need to be watered daily with the Word of God. And at some point in our walk, our branches must be pruned.  None of this is easy, and it all takes time. But, oh, how worth it all it is when we can share our fruit with someone who is desperate to taste and see that the Lord is good. I hope you will enjoy the fruits of this walk we are on.

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Which aspect of growing fruit do you find yourself in today?
  • Where would you like to be by the end of the year?
  • Which fruit do you share most with others?

Have a fruit-filled week!

Penelope Kaye

It has been a blessing to write spiritual poems and share them in services at the Crisis Center. My daughter and I hope to create a book for our family - some of my poems and her art. That will happen if and when I move more to Oregon to be with family. It is all in God's timing for each party 9t

Hi, Linaya. I love how God is leading you to use your creative gifts to bless others. Who knows but that your poems will kindle a fire in the heart of a preacher, a surgeon, a teacher? Blessings, Penelope Kaye
