Fake fruit is kinda waxy

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Gal. 5:22-23a

These traits are so attractive  and valuable that human beings who are not Christ followers seek to imitate them, desire to experience them, and encourage them in others. Much self-improvement and relationship advice seems to be about trying to fake the fruit. If even our feeble human attempts to imitate  these traits can make our attitudes and our relationships better,  imagine what authentic, Spirit-produced fruit would do.

Lord, let the fruit I bear be Spirit-produced and plentiful.
