Tuh-may-toh, tuh-mah-toh, no matter how you pronounce it, it not only tastes good, but it’s good for you. It’s the fruit that thinks it’s a vegetable. The tomato.
Did you know that at 30,000 feet, the juice of the tomato is the top-selling in flight beverage?
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, biotin, molybdenum, and vitamin K. They’re a good source of copper, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin B6, folate, niacin, vitamin E, and phosphoruss.
They come in all sizes from grape, plum, and cherry for snacking, to firm Romas, for cooking, to hefty beefsteaks, ideal for burgers and BLTs. Nothing beats a home grown tomato!
You can’t find many fruits more beneficial for you! Unless of course you are more interested in feeding your soul than your body. Then the fruit of the Spirit might just be in order.
How about you? How prolific is your crop of fruit looking when it comes to the fruit of the spirit?
I must say I constantly use Galatians 5:22-23, the fruit of the spirit, as a barometer of my own spiritual life. John 15:2 tells us “He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m all in for having the Master Gardener prune my ways to produce the most fruit. I want to daily show and share love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control with others in this world.As living proof that God’s spirit lives inside of me.
Tuh-may-toh, tuh-mah-to. No matter how you pronounce it, it’s one of my favorite fruits. Right up there with love, joy, and peace.
Here’s to Zing Zang Bloody Mary mix, roasted tomato salsa, tomato basil bisque, and fried green tomatoes! My favorites.♡
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
Love and laughter,
