Have you ever seen a piece of fruit that looked beautiful, but when you bit into it tasted awful. It was so bad that it could not be eaten, it was fit for nothing except to be deposited in the trash can. Many times we have known people that looked beautiful on the outside and we assumed that they were beautiful on the inside also, but if you rubbed them the wrong way they turned on you and became like a thorn bush. You couldn’t come near them or they would "stick" you. Let us be determined to get the "thorns" out of our fruit. Our desire must be that our fruit be gracious to those around us.
