Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside

My Dear Child,


Can you guess what this fruit is…? It is green on the outside, red on the inside and has many black seeds. Well… it’s watermelon! I have no doubt that you must have tasted this fruit. Watermelon plant thrives and grows best in a warm climate. Its red flesh is sweet and has a lot of juice. It is an excellent source of water and nutrients, especially during the hot and dry periods of the year. Eating watermelon retard the aging process, that is, keeps us young. Watermelon is very good for the heart. It also helps prevent cramps. Watermelons come in many sizes; they are all large which makes them a bit heavy as well. God made fruits for us to eat so that we grow healthy and strong.


The Bible says: “And God said, Let the earth bring forth… the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.” Genesis 1:11


With much love,
