Thoughts from a Farmer’s Market

Grace.  That’s been a tough one for me lately.  “They will know you love Me by your fruit.”  Love.  Joy.  Peace.  Patience.  Kindness.  Goodness.  Faithfulness.  Gentleness.  Self-control.  Offering the other cheek.  Truth in love.  Blessed are the peacemakers.
We’ve been wronged recently, by many people, and I want nothing more than to walk away and shelter my children from the cruelty of people who claimed to love us.
But how does that make me any different?  How will they see Jesus in me, how will my children see Jesus in me, if I’m furthering this divide?
“They will know you love Me by your fruit.”
