So start taking advantage of all the benefits avocados can offer. This creamy fruit can add staying power, vital nutrients, and great taste and texture to your healthy diet.

The avocado is associated with love. How important is love, as an aspect of the fruit of the Spirit, to our spiritual growth? Love will enable us to appreciate our brothers and sisters in the Lord and, of course, our family and others around us. Love is taking the initiative to build up and meet the needs of others, without expecting anything in return. We must allow love to be the foundation of our relationshipsthe love of our Lord that He gives us. Love manifests patience and kindness and it is not greedy or jealous; it is not prideful nor brags of one's accomplishments. It is not rude or self-seeking, and it allows one not to be easily angered. By this, we do not keep record of others wrongs or enjoy it when bad things happen to others; rather, we rejoice with others to build them up. Love always looks after others, shows trust, hope, and always carries on. Every other aspect of the fruit of the Spirit is merely a specific expression of Godly love.

Love is a spiritual fruit that is built from real, godly character and commitment. It is the fiber of our moral center that stretches throughout our being, embracing and holding together our relationships when it is sealed as a choice and commitment, and not just a feeling. A fruit is made up of more than one substance; it has juice, pulp, segments, and seeds, all held together by a skin or rind, and attached to the tree by a stem where its nutrients flow in. If you just eat of the pulp or juice and throw out the rest, how can you use the seeds to grow more? If you take the fruit off the vine, it will wither and rot; if the vine is not cared for, the tree will die. So it is with love. It requires our tending, and it is more than just one substance; all of its substances combined are greater than the sum of its parts. The Scriptures teach that love is a debt we will always owe: Romans 13:8" Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Love is the basis of all of God's commandments.
