Happy August to you,
I have taken a liking to red grapes. I find that red grapes are a good way to take away my craving for a snack, they make a nice compliment to a lettuce salad, and they are terrifically cool and refreshing on a warm Arizona summer afternoon. Not to mention I need more fruit in my menu planning.
I recently preached from Galatians about fruit - Fruit of the Spirit. The Apostle Paul shared that “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23). With this sermon I asked about how we can have more fruit of the spirit into our daily lives.
In the sermon I shared an illustration I found, "The Paradox of Our Age" by Dr. Bob Moorehead, former pastor of Seattle’s Overlake Christian Church, in Words Aptly Spoken. It shows the need for more spiritual fruit in our lives. Here is a portion of it:
We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch too much TV, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life but not life to years!
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build faster computers to access more information, but we communicate with each other less.
Friends, we need more fruit!
I’m going to get some red grapes.
See you in worship!
P.S – Thanks for all the cards, candy, kind wishes, and gifts for my birthday. It is a blessing to be able to celebrate my 56th as I continue serving United Church of Sun City. Thank you!
