Sometimes when I have a tough week and my attitude starts to go downhill, I have a special thing I do. Sometimes I do it just for fun! It's also a great way to bless others, ourselves and please God while adding to your character.
The Fruits Of The Spirit are:
I would choose one of these or write them out and draw one out of a hat or bucket. The 'Spirit' I chose would become my mission for the week. So if I chose Love, I would practice showing love in EVERYTHING I did, said, showed, gave and in any aspect or opportunity to bless someone by showing love. If it was Peace I would work on making God my peace and would meditate on His word and work on making my relationship with Him an intimate one. Simple right?!
Depending on circumstances I would add some more like compassion, forgiveness or blessing - whatever I feel I need to work on in my life.
I challenge you all to chose a 'Spirit' and to make it your focus to demonstrate it in every word you say, action you do and in any other way you can! It's a great exercise and practice to get into. I'm going to be doing it as well and in 1 week from today I'll ask readers about and I expect to get your responses in the comments with the 'Spirit' you chose and how you went!
God bless you all and be with you in the week to come!! :)
