I’ve gone shopping here more than I go at home. And while I’ve been able to get many great things for myself and my family, one purchase is my all time favorite.
It has the Mandarin Chinese characters for the fruit of the spirit on it.
I’ve been praying about the fruit even before I came. I did a Bible study lesson with my freshmen girls on the fruit. It was at that point I realized how important they would be during these months about the Home. And I’m praying about them still. Asking for more of them. Because they’ve been tested. And I’ve failed on several occasions. This ring will be a beautiful reminder.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
