Essential vegetables for growth

This was supposed to go up with the "Holy vegetable" cartoon strip, but for some strange reasons...it didnt appear after i clicked on "publish post".

I stumbled on the strip and just found it funny and childishly meaningful,infact, my nephew runs round the house screaming "have you eaten your holy vegetables today mummy" and strangely, she says, it keeps her in check as she does a mental review of her actions through the day.

Anyways, this here was inspired by my pastor, kindda like adding a personal touch to something we fall into the habit of tagging "spiritual attributes" most times.

So, here's my own version of the fruits of the spirit (holy vegetables, essential for growth..lol) in relation to our everyday life...enjoy

Gal 5: 22 - 23 (JT)*

What happens when we live Gods way? In the same way fruits appear on
an orchard, He brings into our lives such things as:

Our motive for the things we do and the choices we make being love
and genuine affection for others

An upbeat and positive attitude as a sad face chases money
away...believe me it does

Calmness in the midst of trouble and a worry free attitude...after
the worry, what next?

Persistence and staying power cos it aint always smooth sailing but
He shows us to stick it through as long as its the right path

The ability to focus on others and be a problem solver....enough of
me-me, don't let yourself get worn out by "you"

A generous and giving heart

The ability to be reliable and a person of
integrity....opportunities would come knocking if you're reliable
and stable

23.

The proper attitude of treating people cordially and exhibiting
exceptional customer service, even when you don't feel like they
deserve it

The ability to break free from laziness and do what has to be done
as at when, to be self motivated.



So people, lets make up our minds to eat daily doses of our holy vegetables and build our selves wherever we fall short, as they say, life makes way for those who make up their minds.

Have a great week/weekend ahead y'all, and hopefully, more gist coming soon on the singing / stage pet project i spoke about in my "Here Goes" post.

  8. This is a more detailed way of explaining the fruits of the spirit. Something we can really relate with.

    I need this reminder always.

  10. Great stuff, we really need to be feeding on the word, and analogies like this make somethings so much easier to relate to.
