Experience the Fruit of the spirit...

A healthy tree has deep roots. A healthy tree produces good fruit.
Wouldn’t you know, these things relate to us too! Although we are people, we can be like trees
in some ways. To grow, a tree has to have good, deep roots. So do people! For any of us to

One way to physically grow stronger and healthier is to eat good fruit. The average person
should eat one-and-a-half to two cups of fruit a day. Fruit can provide fiber in your diet, several

many positive benefits, and may curb those sugar cravings, too!

If you are spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally growing and becoming healthy, you
will produce fruit in your life. You will begin to truly experience the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. And not only
that, but you will be able to positively affect all the people around you in life.

Be like a tree planted by flowing streams – rooted deep, in a healthy community, fueled by good
fruit and nutrients – and you can begin to produce “fruit,” too.

“That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and
whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.”
Psalms 1:3 NIV
