OUTWARD EVIDENCE OF INWARD CHANGE.
I wonder how the world sees me.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”
Are these traits evident in my life?
If not, is the fact that I’m trying evident?
And, do I really care as long as my efforts are known to my God?
Sadly, I do care. I’m human. I’m fallible. I have a fragile ego.
And obscure verse from another reading caught my eye. Held my attention.
I’ve read the story of Abraham and his quest for a wife for his son Isaac multiple times. I love the romance and the simplicity of the story. But without the help of my beloved Oswald Chambers, I would never have plucked this part of a sentence to stand alone for deeper thought.
Genesis 24:27 “As for me, being on the way, the Lord led me…………”
Yup, I’m on the way and the precious cargo I carry are the Fruits of the Spirit which I freely share.
Cyber hugs, many, many blessings and as much fruit as you want!
