Good Morning October 14

Fruit is good. We are told that we should eat a serving of fruit each day for our health. We also speak of fruit in other ways, a fruitful life, or a fruitful days work. Scripture speaks of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22 and 23, the characteristics of life that are pleasing to God, and good to others. The writer of Hebrews speaks of our praise to God as being the fruit of our lips. (13:15) He follows this by saying, “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” We are reminded that as fruit is good for the health of our bodies, the fruit of our lives is good not just for ourselves, but for those around us. We want this day to accomplish the necessary things, but also to be useful for those around us. Let this be a truly fruitful day.
