Spirit Fruit

Day 74  March 15, 2013

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.  -Galatians 5:22

“Be bold.  Go to a store that you frequently shop at or a restaurant where you frequently eat and ask what they will let you make there….”  from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“Fruit is always the miraculous, the created; it is never the result of willing, but always a growth. The fruit of the Spirit is a gift of God, and only He can produce it. They who bear it know as little about it as the tree knows of its fruit. They know only the power of Him on whom their life depends”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.”-Saint Basil
