“I’ll just have what she’s having.” Have you ever gotten to a restaurant after they’ve already ordered and said that? It’s probably because what they had looked that good. You didn’t have to ask the ingredients or amount of time it’s cooked to decide. You just liked the look of it.

Such is life. People want what you have when it looks good to them. Do you still manage to stay calm when the computer breaks down at the bank? Do you have a smile on your face when it’d be easier to be angry? Do you have peace when stress would be acceptable? People notice and they want what you’re having.

Matthew 7:16 says, “By their fruits you will easily recognize them.” (Weymouth New Testament) Let the Fruit of the Spirit work in your life. Then I promise–once they taste it for themselves, they will see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8)
