22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
The fallen world we live in is filled with hate, envy, and violence. This is not the way our Lord would have us live. Our Lord desires for us the “fruits of the Spirit” as given in today’s scripture. Is that even possible? Yes it is! Wherever I am this day, may the Holy Spirit guide my thoughts, my actions, my words. In my little corner of the world, I want to show that there is a way to live above the turmoil. The Prince of Peace can give us the strength to do that.
Dear God: “Let there be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.” Fill me with those great gifts granted by the Holy Spirit. Calm my heart and soul as I begin this day. Help me to extend to all I encounter this day the love, joy and peace of Jesus Christ. In His Name I pray. Amen
