But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
What a beautiful bunch of fruit this list is! And so much to aspire to, where do we start?! Fruit takes time to grow - there are seasons when the work needs to be done, to get the ground ready, to plant the seeds. Then there is a season when it looks like very little is happening and there are no obvious signs of growth and then one day the start of something delicious begins to appear, but not overnight.
It takes time and eﬀort to produce fruit.
And the same is true of the fruits of the Spirit.
The Spirit is at work in us, but we also need to play our part. So maybe today just pick one quality!
