1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3,4

Fruits Of The Spirit


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:
Love
Joy
Peace
Patience
Kindness
Goodness
Faithfulness
Gentleness
Self-Control

Galations 5:22-23 


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!! :)
