Last week, my wife bought some wallnut fruits from Oil Mill market. The following morning, I picked up 4 for a quick breakfast in the office.
The wallnut fruits reminded me of something. But hard as I tried, I couldn’t immediately lay my thoughts on what they were reminding me of. My mind fleeted back to my teen days when my dad use to fete me with these fruits on his return from one of our farms.
The outward covering shell is an uninviting black or at best a depressing brown color. Then, just take courage, take a plunge, crack the shell and a delicious white or milky white world of goodness awaits you.
Yes, the wallnut fruit reminds me that I should not judge by outward appearances only. Do not be quick to make conclusions just because of outward appearances.
So well did the Holy Bible taught us that, “….. the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” 1Samuel 16verse 7
What other lessons does the wallnut fruit teach you?
