The Fruits of the Spirit

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, optimism, gentleness, humility, and self-control…

Be the one who chooses, practices, gives, and, therefore, receives those good things.

Here’s some good advice on how to live a good life (from the Christian Scriptures)

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your human nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another.

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires…

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, optimism, gentleness, humility, and self-control. 


The Spirit has given us life… let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. 

~ Paul, the apostle, in Galatians 5: 13 – 26
