Fruit | Fruit Of The Spirit!
Fruit is defined as the sweet and fleshy product of a tree or other plant that contains seed and can be eaten as food. The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a person living in accord with the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Last year, I created a necklace using a lanyard with a clear id holder attached to it. First, I wrote each of the fruit of the Spirit, along with their definitions, on a different piece of small colored construction paper. Second, I placed one of the cards inside the clear id holder attached to the lanyard. Third, I purchased a small crystal bowl to place the cards not being worn in. Last, I wore the lanyard with one of the fruit cards attached everyday for two weeks.
Each day next week, I will wear my lanyard and a fruit of the Spirit card to remind me how I should be living, according to the fifth chapter of the Epistle to the Galatians, and put forth a sincere effort to embody each of the attributes.
