Galatians 5:16-26 and Matthew 7:15-23 both talk about fruit. Just as an apple tree should not bear oranges, Christians should not bear bad fruit. We can’t live perfectly, but our lives should ultimately reflect what we are. “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20, KJV) If others look at your life, do your actions and attitude show the fruit of the Spirit? As it says in Galatians, we should walk in the Spirit because He can keep us away from the temptations of the flesh so that we can bear good fruit.
This short and sweet post is not my first time to tackle this letter, in fact, one of my favorite posts was titled Brought to you by the Letter F.
