Tend to Your Orchard


But what happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life(the emotion of great happiness/excitement), serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wiselyGal 5:22-23 MSG
I would like to encourage you to think about your life, your home, your office as your own personal orchard. An orchard is a place where fruit is cultivated.  Your fruit should look like the things listed in this scripture. There are some amazing things in this word. Affection, excited about life, serenity, stick-to-it-ive-ness and a general belief that people are good. Take a moment today to see how much of this fruit is growing in your orchard. Don't allow bad conditions to spoil the fruit on the vine. You are given the ability by God to be fruit bearing believers. So what should you do? Tend to your orchard!
