Fruit of the Spirit : GENTLENESS
Fruit Symbol : BANANA
Reason : Bananas bruise easily, turning brown in parts where it's been injured. Therefore, the banana is used to symbolize "Gentleness," just like how we have to be gentle when handling bananas. This could also play a part in our everyday lives, where we have to be gentle with our words and actions towards others, because we never know how our harmful, uncaring words and behavior can bruise the other person's heart, mind and soul. Let the banana be your daily reminder to practice gentleness.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
