The Honest Banana

It seems apt that we consider the 'forbidden fruit' that Eve ate to be an apple.

It certainly wasn't a banana. Banana's are just too honest.

Now a banana can't look tempting and be bad at the same time. If a banana is bad it shows us very simply.

Apples, on the other hand, are deceitful indeed.

You can pick the most beautiful, shiny, red apple from the tree and be 100% sure it will be delicious. It's skin displays it's magnificance and tempts you, entirely. But take a bite and it could be yellow and floury, soft and awful. The apple continues to decieve today just as it did, so many years ago.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    This is a great metaphor for life, and it's something I haven't really thought about before. Hopefully we can all try to fill our lives with more 'bananas' and be less disappointed with the 'apples' we encounter.


My words are no more important than yours.

So let me hear them!
