Galatians 5:22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Most folks gauge their success by how much money they have or how much stuff they can acquire. They look at all of the things that are said about them and the number of friends that they have. I have always believed that it was ok to have stuff, just be careful that the stuff does not have you!
The measure of a truly successful life in God is "fruit". We are enthusiastic, sold-out fruit producers! Each day you should become a dispenser of fresh produce!
The kinds of things that are important to God are things like love, joy and peace. Being patient, kind and good. Live faithfully and be gentle and self-controlled. You get these by developing a close personal relationship with Jesus and allowing His spirit to produce this wonderful fruit. Fruit is what makes us different from every one else. Fresh produce!
Work hard. Pray harder. Stay focused on Jesus and stay connected to him. It won't be long until you blossom with all kinds of fruit!
