photoRotten fruit is undesirable and unattractive.  So is a customer who isn’t kind.  I used to be that kind of customer. When I was dissatisfied with my meal, I demanded to speak to a manager; when I didn’t have a receipt, I demanded a refund-exception; when I wanted the late charge dropped, I ranted ’til they gave it.  After all, I was the customer, and the customer is always right.  Sadly, I was also a Christian, a Christian who was very wrong.  The “fruit” of kindness God had given me as His child, had grown rotten. Conversely, when we count the ways God has been kind to us, we can’t even count it.  The bible tell us that He wants to prosper us – kindness!  The bible tells us that He sent his only Son to die for us – kindness!  The bible tells us He’s preparing a place for us in Heaven – kindness!  If I could travel back in time,  I would go to all the waitresses, cashiers and the like who I wasn’t kind to and ask for forgiveness.  In those moments, even if I was “right” it was still a moment I could have been different.  These days, I try to be customer where they will know I am a Christian by my love…not by my “right.”
