The Fruit of the Spirit…

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Against such things there is no law."   Galatians 5:22-23

 

Yes, today is Monday.  I know that a lot of people dread Monday, but Monday is another opportunity to spread joy, peace, and goodness.  It's really all about our attitudes.  If we give in to the attitudes of hatefulness, cruelty, dread, and fear, then Monday will be what we make of it...nothing to look forward to at all, for us or for anyone around us.  However, if we are filled with the Spirit and walking with the Spirit, then our attitudes will be ones of "love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."  These are the fruits of the Spirit.  Monday can be a great day if our attitudes are right...if we "crucify the flesh with its passions and desires" and "live by the Spirit" and "keep in step with the Spirit" (Galatians 5:24-25).  Then we can really do what Paul challenges us to do in Ephesians 5:16...MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY!  Today (Monday) is another opportunity for us to shine for the Lord.  What will we do with this Monday???

I would love to hear your comments...
