Today’s Inspiration

From the Inside Out

Our society places so much importance on the way things look that appearances often take priority over true quality. One time I saw some big, perfect-looking oranges at the grocery store and decided to buy one. I was sure the orange would taste as good as it looked, but when I peeled that beautiful thing and took a bite, it was dry and bitter.

Taking time to consider whether you’re as good on the inside as you look on the outside is a serious matter. Many people are searching for God today, and there are countless teachings about how to find Him that sound right. That’s why when people are attracted to your fruit, you need to make sure it tastes as good as it looks. Only then will people see Jesus in you and realize He loves them, and that He is the one true God.

Prayer Starter: Father, please show me where I need to take inventory of the fruit in my life; help me fix anything inside that isn’t what it needs to be. Thank You for giving me grace to be authentic and genuinely like You, inside and out. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
