Bear fruit!

"By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples."
John 15:8
As I was thinking about this Gospel this morning, I was pondering what, exactly, the "fruit" is that glorifies God. I believe the fruit we bear goes far beyond any children we may have or success we may achieve in our lives.  The fruit we bear is as simple as a laugh or warm smile we share with someone.  Or holding the door for a stranger or telling them, "Good Morning!" Bearing fruit includes sharing what we have with others, be it clothes from our closet or an idea that pops into our head.  Any helpful act or idea, smile or kind word can be fruitful and give glory to God.  Jesus tells us that any kindness we do for another we are really doing for him.  We may never know the positive fruit our small action bears, but we can rest assure that whatever we do in kindness and love for another gives glory to God.  So, let's get out there and love each other, this windy Wednesday!  Love, heidi
