God wants the best for you

Lev 19:24-25

"But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holy to praise the LORD withal.
And in the fifth year shall ye eat of the fruit thereof, that it may yield unto you the increase thereof: I am the LORD your God."

In verse 23, the children of Israel were instructed to wait three years before they even considered the fruit from the trees they planted.

As I was reading these verses this morning, I realized how far we have diverted from God’s original plan for our health and increase. I know some of you are ready to argue the fact that we are no longer under the law and I agree with you entirely. But don't forget that all scripture was inspired by the Holy Spirit for instruction and guidance. Therefore always listen to the Holy Spirit as you read and meditate on what He guides you to read.

In this scripture the following two points stood out:
1. Gratitude for what God provides for us. The fruit in the fourth year was set aside for thanksgiving and praise. 'A grateful heart does not complain!'
2. The maturity of the fruit: if we pick our produce before it matures, we interfere with its quality, both the yield and the nutrition of our food is jeopardized.

No wander our food lacks quality nutrients. To our loving Father, a mature apple had to grow its fruit for 4 years before they would be picked. This gave the tree time to produce both quality and quantity. But what do we do today? We fertilizers the soil and spray the tree and the fruits with dangerous chemicals so that we may get the harvest in one year!!!!
Madness isn’t it? Let’s go back to the basics. Back to nature, no tricks,.

When purchasing your produce, choose organic and live longer. God wants the best for you.
