This Week in Beauty…

Galations 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance, against such there is no law.

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits…

Love, joy, and peace are straightforward enough to understand.

Longsuffering I looked up to be I understood. “…patiently enduring lasting offense or hardship.” It’s more enduring than what I thought.

Gentleness, goodness, and faith are straightforward. 

Meekness means a state of being meek; mild, moderate, humble, or submissive. I remind myself that being those things before God is not being a doormat. God changes everything.

Temperance means moderation in action, thought, or feeling: restraint. No flying off  the handle. 

These are qualities everyone needs to nourish and grow. I’m learning.
