Fruit of the Spirit : LOVE
Fruit Symbol : CHERRY
Reason : The cherry is used to symbolize "Love" because like the bible verse says, "Love your neighbour as you love yourself." Whether it be your family member, coworker, opponent, or stranger, to name a few, we must learn to love others even when they may frustrate, hurt or anger us. It is easy to love someone who is lovable, but the greatest test is to love those who aren't always the kindest. Therefore, the cherry is a reminder to remain cheerful and loving in the words we use, actions and expressions.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
