HOWDY! “The ALL-FRUIT” Diet.

As a nation, we are producing very little of lasting importance.  God created us for a holy purpose, but he also gave to us, Free Will.  We’ve been Freeing Will for centuries, but have little worthiness to show for it.  One time, that wasn’t so, but we’ve modernized and transformed into creatures of habit and self-adoration.  We glory in looking nice on the outside, but what is on the inside is detritus, unworthy of interest.  Comedy and Entertainment has led us to believe in nothing–Nothing of lasting value, but God’s Truth still remains, regardless of how we may perceive it.  I’ve said all along that we’ve lost our “First Love”.  The Love spoken about in Scripture and here’s proof!  How much of the following ‘life ingredients’ can we say exist in our hearts?

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5: 22-23)

LOVE

JOY

FORBEARANCE

KINDNESS

GOODNESS

FAITHFULNESS

GENTELNESS

SELF-CONTROL

How many would others say were evident in our lives?  Who do you know whose life is such an example?  I’d be interested in knowing the names on each list, wouldn’t you?  How many reading this can say that about yourself?  Now, that’s Tough Love!

And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates.     AMEN
