FAKING IT

I once read of a little boy who, when sent to his room for punishment, would escape out his bedroom window and down an old fruit tree to the ground. One day, his father told him that he was going to chop down the fruit tree, because it hadn’t borne any fruit for a number of years. That motivated the enterprising boy to take action.

That night he tied a bushel of apples on the barren branches. The next morning, his dad could not believe his eyes.

He said to his wife, “Honey, I can’t believe it! That old tree hasn’t yielded any fruit for years, and now it’s covered with apples. And, the most amazing thing is that it’s a pear tree!”

Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that can’t be faked! You either have it or you don’t. You might attempt to hang apples on the pear tree – but that’s not real fruit! God doesn’t want you to pretend. If you don’t have the joy that God intends for you, go to Him today. Yield yourself to Him, to His will, to His love and He will fill your life with joy unspeakable.
