The Super Fruit of Joy 

Kiwi on White

 

By G.P. Avants

 

Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the Lord is your strength!”

 

                                    Nehemiah 8:10

Last time we spoke about the term super fruit. These are fruits that are highly nutritious and provide your body with essential food building blocks. Did you know that there are super fruits available for your soul? Our soul needs to be fed for it is the real core of who we are. There is the fruit of the Holy Spirit which enables God’s children to live a life of faith in the world. Each week we will talk about a different fruit or as some feel a different aspect of one fruit with multiple uses.  On a recent car ride my family and I made a list of some of the natural super fruits that feed our natural body and tried to associate one with a spiritual fruit. So, here goes.

Happy, happy, joy, joy! I would like to say the super fruit this week is always found in happy moments, everyone getting along, and easy as Sunday morning. The truth is joy, in many ways, is very grounded in realism while it hints of deeper eternal truths at the same time.

What fruit did we equate with joy?

The kiwi. What makes it fall into the category of super fruit? I guess the question is what does the kiwi not do? It is higher in Vitamin C than oranges, lower in sugar than many fruits, and plenty of natural fiber for your gut. Though some would say get rid of the skin it is too rough, that extra roughage does a great job removing our build up on the inside.

Have we talked about the mix of many major minerals in the kiwi?  I think this is a key to anyone who is active. Sweating makes you lose water an minerals, like potassium, calcium, copper, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and manganese. Plain water doesn’t cut it, but slice up a few kiwis and feel it replenish your tired body again.

 

How is the super fruit of joy even more richer?

Where happiness  can be dependent on circumstances, Joy is deeper. It is being content in all circumstances. Think about everything this difficult marathon of a life drains out of us. What is our source of renewal? Our own Human Resources?  We need joy because it’s a concentrated source of strength. It takes the abuse that a cruel world dishes out turns into strength. Suffering might make our hairs stand up or we experience the prickles of fear, but joy of the Lord can be our strength. Joy has a unique sweetness, a little grit, a thick skin, but a richer lasting hope bursting inside. We get more than the warm fuzzies when we draw on this eternal source of God’s Holy Spirit. It’s like being full deep down in your soul.

Like the fruit of gentleness, both have to toughen up, but not harden up. Mixed with perseverance Joy can shine out when all other lights go out. It is small enough to be held in the hand, but large enough to fill a mouth with a smile.  You are filled with a joyfulness that can smile when there is no reason to. You could say joy knows whom to put it’s faith in at every moment. As a side note, in God’s economy that there is amazing encouragement when we let our joyful smile brighten up a tired and weary world. Maybe I was wrong about the happy, happy, joy, joy attitude.
