Expecting Fruit

vineyardI recently attended an outdoor wedding that took place in a vineyard. The setting was beautiful, and the weather cooperated. It was a very nice ceremony.

At the reception, someone mentioned that they had checked the vines and found that there were indeed very small grapes growing there. Another person and I looked at each other and had the same thought at the same time—“We didn’t even think to look for grapes!”

Of course there should be grapes in a vineyard. That’s what vineyards are for—producing grapes.

Christians are also supposed to produce fruit. If someone took a close look at you, would they find any?

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control…”—Galatians 5:22-23.
