Real or faux? Most would identify with ‘of course these are real.’ In actuality, they are decor found in my cupboard to enhance the look of my kitchen table. However, any Christian whom is following our Lord and Savior closely knows the importance of identifying one’s fruits. Is this not true? Just as the saying goes, ‘actions speak loader than words,’ so does an individual’s walk bearing His fruits from their life. Many I meet claim to be Christian, however, the fruits of their life appear withered and bare. Many can appear to have real fruits, however, the closer you inspect, the truth draws forth similar to this photo. Why is it that many settle for faux fruits? I am not to judge, simply, it does not take long prior to searching. And I will be the first to admit, the enemy wants nothing more than to steal your time with the One, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, who created the fruits to begin with. Let His fruits overflow in your life, and then no one will have to guess if they are real or faux. Be alert! Many will read this and begin to question their own walk. Be fruit-filled. Walk humbly, and if you question other’s walk, look at your own fruits first.
Matthew 7:16-20 “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”
