Today’s Fruit of the Spirit was Kindness. I apologize for going directly into the next day, I jumped the gun. It has been a long day. My write up for kindness was sent to my team members last night. I have to admit myself they are so closely entwined.
Day 5: Fruit of the Spirit (KINDNESS) The Bible says, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:31) You have to love in order to be kind. That is why LOVE is the first Fruit of the Spirit to grow in. Now we are at day 5, I challenge you to show kindness to someone who you have challenges with every time you encounter them. God is Love. You can be too. “Hit the Grow Walking”
Day 6: Fruit of the Spirit (GOODNESS)
The Bible says, “make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge”
(2 Peter 1:5). Today, we pray for our kids. We want good kids – not just smart kids. We pray that our schools will teach knowledge and virtue. Walk to a local school, a day-care center or the library. As you walk, pray that God will lead educators to model and teach good character as well as academic excellence. If the Spirit leads you, send a local principal, dean, teacher or staff member a note or e-mail of thanks and encouragement. Go the Extra Mile: Invite a girl in
your life to take a walk with you. As you walk, listen to her. Serve as a mentor on the trail. Ask her what she cares about. Give her positive feedback, good advice and kind words. (Source: www.girltrek.org)
There is a good study on the Goodness of God and the Study of Psalms 107. So as you complete your walk today, why not turn to Psalms 107 to read and meditate on it. Then download or read on line the paper written by Ron Hutchison.
