Fruit

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)

Galatians 5:16-26 and Matthew 7:15-23 both talk about fruit. Just as an apple tree should not bear oranges, Christians should not bear bad fruit. We can’t live perfectly, but our lives should ultimately reflect what we are. “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20, KJV) If others look at your life, do your actions and attitude show the fruit of the Spirit? As it says in Galatians, we should walk in the Spirit because He can keep us away from the temptations of the flesh so that we can bear good fruit.

 This short and sweet post is not my first time to tackle this letter, in fact, one of my favorite posts was titled Brought to you by the Letter F.

  1. The world would be a much better place if we all followed the rule of "not bearing bad fruit." It's nice to meet you through A to Z! I hope to see more of you, Elizabeth!
