Galatians 5:22 talks about the fruit of the Spirit, what kind of fruit is that? Is it an apple fruit, a pear fruit? Let me give you an analogy: Imagine a whole orange, now peel that orange and divide the pieces. Although you've divided it into pieces, is it still an orange? Yes!
The fruit is the character of God and the pieces of that character are God's love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, patience and self-control. This "fruit" is how we are to interact with people as believers. Every person we meet we give them a piece (or pieces) of fruit.
I know you're probably thinking, giving away pieces of fruit is easier said then done. I would be the first to agree, but let me remind you, as I often remind myself...We are a new creature in Christ, old things have passed away and all things are new! (See 2 Corinthians 5:17) The day we confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives, we got our character fruit, the task is freely giving it away. The cool thing about this kind of fruit - it is ever replenishing, you never run out of it.
