Today I am sharing some verses to read and reflect on to help develop the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Some fruits are easier to grow in our lives, but some are more difficult. My prayer is that one of the verses will resonate with you and help you grow.
Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16:14
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Seek good, not evil,
that you may live.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.
Lord God, help us to develop the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Amen.
