1. What a beautiful article. I loved where you say, “That doesn’t mean there won’t be struggles and suffering in our life. But it means our character won’t be the cause of our pain or someone else’s pain.” It really made me think. Too often we are lead to believe that we are promised the golden ticket to a life without heartache when we come to Christ. But there is suffering and pain sometimes. Thank you for putting it so beautifully.

      If we only had joy we wouldn’t get the honor of knowing God as the great healer and comforter that He is! I’m glad the article touched you! God Bless!

  2. Since they are fruit and not fruits, we can work on one and have them all – all to bless others and be blessed all at once! To be filled means I need an emptying on my part.

  3. What a beautiful article! I love how you used the word “practice” there for implying that we CHOOSE, which we really do !! I really appreciated your insight that we “meet someone where they are,” even when applying the FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT. Thank you for this Melissa! I pinned it on my Christian Living board.
