God: best innovator ever…
Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”
When you read the word presented today and consider the characteristics presented for the fruit of the Spirit, it might at first read or appear to be a multitude or culmination of fruits put together, but as you read and consider, the many parts of the fruit is what the various verbs contribute to a whole.
It takes all of this to complete the person; some love, a bit of joy, a lot of longsuffering; you have got to be gentle; filled with goodness, have the faith to believe in our God, don’t forget the meekness, temperance mixed in with it all.
It takes all of this to bring together the fruit that will bless us with fulfillment and may the God of truth who created the fruit in His wisdom, grant us the ingredients to accept and walk in this good gift.
