We have to be careful and pay close attention to the way we treat others and the words we speak!
What is in your heart? Is there jealousy in your heart? Is there greed in your heart? Are you kind to people to their face but gossiping about them behind their backs? Whatever it may be..the truth will come out no matter what your fruits are! If you are kindhearted, loving, devoted to your friends..those fruits will show themselves..people will see those things, good or bad fruits..people will find you out! Be real..don't pretend or go back on your word, be kind and decent to others..no matter what has happened in your day. Treat others the way that you would like to be treated and true friends will show themselves to you.
Jesus treated all of his disciples fair and the same, he loved them as his brothers and he never betrayed them! Wouldn't it be nice if we could also treat others that way? What if we could be caring toward people in our lives instead of starting problems? What if we could bring a smile to their day instead of bringing sorrow to them?
That's why we need to take a look at our fruits and see if we are carrying around good fruits or bad fruits to others, it's very important to benefit others..not tear others down all the time! Have joy and peace to offer to others and people will want to be around you! If you're a negative type of person it can be hard to make friends because you can only offer them negativity, but if you are a happy type of person people will want to be around you and they will in return be good friends to you!
What kind of fruits are you carrying around in your daily life?
"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident:sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self- control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another."

Make a good difference in people lives..don't be the problem in people's lives, show them Jesus in your daily life! Let your fruits be good fruits that benefit others around you!
