“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”   – Galatians 5:22-23


Food 4 Thought


Did you notice that fruit is not plural? It’s singular. And if you look it up in the original words, it’s still singular. The Fruit (singular) of the Spirit is love. Therefore, the rest – joy, peace, kindness, etc- all stem out of love.

It’s like the Holy Spirit is the seed, love is the stem, and the rest are the pedals and leaves of the flower.

Therefore, if we struggle in patience or self-control or one of the others, the key to overcoming it would be to operate in a spirit of…yup, you guessed it…love.



Have a weekend filled with blessings 🙂
