attracting fruit (2.32 am)

my children are drawn to fruit as if it is the original chocolate.

they:

are attracted by that first mouth-wide-open bite of an apple.

completely surrender to the siren call of cut watermelon.

are mesmerized by apricots like tiny glowing orbs.

never fail to wonder at the fuzz on a peach.

someone shared with me that a different kind of fruit should have the same effect on people.

 
joy……. attracts desire for it.

peace……. attracts curiosity.

patience……. attracts favor.

kindness……. attracts openness.

goodness……. attracts self-evaluation.

faithfulness……. attracts trust.

gentleness……. attracts vulnerability.

self-control…attracts respect.

and love…….

love is the basket that it all belongs in.

“but the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”       (galatians 5:22-23, ESV)
