What I like most about summer
Summer is awesome for many reasons. And yes, longer daylight hours, and being able to ride my bike without spending 30 minutes bundling up are some of the top reasons. But another top reason may surprise you:
It’s summer fruit. Tomatoes, nectarines, watermelon, peaches, sweet corn, plums, zucchini, cantaloupe, and more. I can almost feel the juice running down my chin while I’m writing. Who doesn’t like fruit, right?
I think it’s no accident that the Christian life is described as bearing fruit. Really tasty fruit. Run down your chin kind of fruit.
Can you imagine living with someone who was dripping that kind of fruit? Who wouldn’t want to hang around for more, right? Those are available “in season.”
God desires for you to bear that kind of fruit today. This is your “summer season.” If someone were to peruse the produce aisle of your life, what kind of fruit would they find? Would it create a desire for more? Would it produce a pleasant aroma?
Something to think about as we enter into summer. Let your life overflow with the fruit of the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23) Make this the “summer” of your life.
