Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are God's wonderful creation. In the Bible we see that God created Adam and Eve -- the first man and woman -- and placed them in the beautiful garden of Eden. They were given everything in the garden for their enjoyment, excepting the fruits of the Tree of Wisdom.

These natural sources of food and nutrition are essential for our normal growth and existence. God has been so kind and beneficent that he saw to it that fruits and vegetables grow in different regions of the world in spite of diversity in weather, soil and seasonal patterns.

Fruits and vegetables grow from tiny seeds, but by offering themselves for our consumption, they benefit us immensely. By dying they give us life. We can learn a great lesson from the lives of these fruits and vegetables. We are also in this world to be fruitful through our words and deeds. We are here to be useful to others. How much of this responsibility are we fulfilling in this world?
