Proverbs 12:12

Today you get to fill in the blank. If you need help you can look up the answers in Galatians 5:22-23

L_ve
Jo_
Pe_ce
Pat_en_e
Ki_dne_s
_ood_ess
Fa_thf_uln_ess
Ge_tlene_ss
_elf _on_rol

Your version may be a bit different but this was easy enough I am sure that you could fill the words in no problem. I do want to point out a common mistake when people talk about the FRUIT of the Spirit. Note that it is fruit, not FRUITS. These all go together. You cannot be loving without having patient and being joyful. You can't be kind without being gentle. You can't be a peacemaker without having self control. And on and on.

I think we all want to be these things. We all want to be good and kind and gentle and loving, am I right? Dig your roots in deep ladies. Make sure that you are producing FRUIT.

These words look so very pretty. They are true beauty of the soul aren't they? And to answer your question Tonya, who doesn't want to be these things?!

This points back to verse 8 and 9, and the reputation we want to have. That we bear this fruit.

Oh, how I try to show these fruits. Sometimes I have an epic fail, though! I'm so glad that our Lord always lets me have another "go" at it! Yes, I do want to be all of those things....

Patience. Why does it have to be one of them?
