“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
Galatians 5:22-23 HCSB
This scripture arrived on my phone today. A deeper dive into the context of it and this is where Paul is writing, that if you focus on the fruit then you won’t have to worry about all the bad behaviors that go against the spirit. There are no rules against love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Focus on these things and “what matters is faith, working through love.” You can go a little deeper if you want into the audience Paul is addressing, but I like the fact that simply if you emphasize the good things you won’t have to worry about the sins of the flesh. Something to ponder.
