    1. Mandy, it is named Artocarpus odoratissimus. Locally called Marang and it is found in my province and other parts of Mindanao (south) as well as Palawan (West Philippine Sea). You can eat the sweet and yummy seed coating/flesh just like the jack fruit and cacao. The seeds, like that of jack fruit (but almost half the size), can be roasted and taste like peanuts and softer than almonds. The verses says it all. May we be fruitful (just like the Marang Tree) in JESUS for GOD the FATHER’s glory! The Internet Service Provider’s technicians are probably checking the problem in their local switch area and might be coming any minute now. Blessings to you, Nathan and your family! I’ll introduce that fruit to you both.

        1. Only GOD is the BEST, Mandy but looking forward to introduce the rare fruit and I want to know your reaction. It can be eaten in a cup/sherbet properly once you extract the seeds by a serving fork, by fork alone on a plate if you eat them directly, or just like eating a huge chicken drumstick (kind of rough but greedily satisfying) when you just peel the cover. I’m just a flawed man saved by His grace and a doubter once for a short time. Internet is back, few minutes ago!!

        3. Fruits, there are so many that you should try. I’m not so sure if you have encountered star apple, santol, macopa (cabana🎵) or tambis, duhat, chico, lanzones, mangosteen, rambutan, siniguelas, atis, and suha. Maybe, I should come up with a series and these fruits are the background photos, Fruit Tunes. Thanks, Mandylorian! When will season 3 be with so many new Star Wars spin offs and series.

    1. True, Jim! It is only by the Triune GOD’s mercy and Divine Providence that we bear fruit at all. He directs and molds us through the many events in our life so we can bear fruit. All of these is for his sole glory. Also, GOD gives and takes away. The source of power, wisdom, and strength is GOD and GOD alone. Blessings to ypu and your family!

      1. Someone shared my Bible contradiction table of content and made WordPress unable to notify some of people’s comments because it overwhelmed my notification so I just manually came over to your post and saw thisreply! Amen brother!

  1. I was so taken in by the strange and rare fruit in your picture Clark, that I almost dismissed the Bible verse. A closer look at the picture of the rare fruit I see that is very appropriate for the verse. The inside is filled with seeds ( I think…) and so are we filled with the fruit of Righteousness that comes through Christ to the glory of God.
    Thank you my friend. May your Lord’s Day be blessed.

    1. Crissy, thank you for telling that. I never thought that would be the impact of a common fruit in my province. Common as in it is just around AU$ 2 in the province but around AU$ 7 here in Metro Manila. It can be found in the neighboring Indonesia and Malaysia. That is a great analogy on the many seeds as it can have more than 50 depending on the size. So can be a GOD given righteousness. When the Triune GOD pours/gives His grace, mercy, spiritual gifts, direction, guidance, and calm/peaceful heart, He can be so generous. Of course, with so many, much is also required. I imagine that will be a battery or stamina or enthusiasm to serve Him. Blessings to you, your family, and your ministry team! Good morning!
