What is Falling From Your Tree?

Written by Fayspirations
soniquepic Most grade schools do not go into detail when teaching a child about trees. The lesson is usually broken down into parts of a simple tree. This lesson includes exploration of the trunk, branches and leaves. As they read books and explore the world around them they learn that different trees bear different fruits. They discover the apple, orange and pear tree. They learn about fruits being green, ripe or spoiled. They learn that some trees continually bear good sweet and ripe fruit and others are known for the rotten and spoiled fruit that fall from them.

As disciples of Christ when we decided to follow Jesus we signed up to be trees. Each tree bearing the fruit of the spirit which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control (Gal 5:22). These fruits take their individual times to ripen and show forth in our lives. Some of us may have more patience than others. However, that does not mean we do not continue to prune the branch on the patience limb and wait for God to manifest it. Gentleness may not be your strong suit but you know it is a fruit that must come from your tree. Being a person of peace and kindness are fruits and by this people will know you are a disciple of Christ (Matt 7:20).

If you are a person who saps the joy from any situation or you struggle to show love on a daily basis it is because your tree is bearing bad fruit. In this life we encounter situation that act as pesticide to our tree, making it look pretty on the outside but spoiling its taste. The ones receiving your fruit get a sour, bitter and unpalatable encounter with someone who professes to be a disciple of Christ.

Where many go wrong in their walk is trying to constantly TELL others about their lives as a Christian. If you are living your life bearing the fruits of the spirit it will be obvious to your fellow man that you are walking in the footsteps of Jesus. No need for a bumper sticker or a t-shirt announcing your status as a believer. Those things are superficial and can be purchased by anyone. Authenticity comes from others seeing you helping your brother or sister in Christ. It comes from you having self-control when you really want to let the store clerk know how you really feel. People are always taking note of how you respond when you are not in your “church clothes”.

The ways to rest assure that your tree continues to bear good fruit is to prune your branches and water your roots. Pruning in the human life includes removal of things that hinder us from growth; negative influences that choke out the sunlight (Christ) and hinder the water (the Word of God) from getting to our roots. This process may not be easy but it is definitely worth it to make sure that you remain a good tree bearing good fruit.

Scripture Of The Day: 

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23a NIV

    flat abs for life review/the best product ever created to have a flat abs for life,

    "I can’t believe it.,
    Flat Abs For Life.the best product.ever

    After 6 years of trying to solve my weight issue...

    you were able to identify it right away.

    As you know, to everyone else I looked skinny.

    But that’s because I kept hiding my stomach.

    I couldn’t figure out what was wrong.

    I was ONLY gaining weight in my torso.

    The more I worked out...

    the more my arms and legs and every other part of my body got leaner...

    ...but my waist got pudgier,

    my stomach stuck out more, and

    my waistline disappeared.

    And I was going to Cabo in a month.

    So I wanted my waistline to look as lean as the rest of my body.

    Oh, and I also had acne with my menstrual cycle even though I was 35 years old.

    You spotted the problem right away and now...

    I’ve lost 13 pounds...

    my acne is gone...

    my cravings are totally under control and

    I worked out half as much as I used to.

    Thank you!

    Now I can wear the bikini I wanted to and

    not have to hide half my body!"
