Back in the summer days when you regularly ate seeded watermelons, do you remember having a seed spitting contest? There would be a great competition (often for kids and adults, alike) to see how far the seeds would fly (or not!).
Here’s the thing with a good watermelon: it’s big, it’s juicy, and it’s made for sharing. Sure, you could eat it on your own, but it isn’t quite as refreshing. Plus: you likely won’t finish it on your own. Watermelon was made to best enjoy in company, just like we were made to be in the fellowship of a church community.
P.S. Did you know it is National Watermelon Day? Pick up a watermelon to enjoy with your family and neighbors!
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8
