SCRIPTURE

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

~Galatians 5:22-23, NRSV

QUOTE

The difference between want and need is self-control.

Study the fruit of the Spirit…love, joy, peace, etc. Is there anything on this list that is unattractive to you? Honestly, there is nothing on the list that I do not admire and covet. What moron would not want love, joy and peace? The last thing on the list is self-control but it is actually the key to all the others. If we would deny self and give preference to others, the other fruit would emerge without our effort. We always begin with love because it is first on the list and probably the most coveted fruit but the key is self-control. In terms of importance, it is first.

  • I stand amazed. What a Thursday night response! Linda and Dian were hear and waiting on the arrival of the goods. Within 30 minutes, the FORTE looked like an ant hill. This doesn’t mean we are through but we are off to a great start.
  • We will be here all day today. Our focus today will be the Grace Barn and tonight we may do some more sitting up. I’m not sure about the Saturday Schedule: Mandy has that but I will post it tomorrow.
