The Fruit of the Spirit

The fruit of the Spirit includes:

Love – for those who do not love in return.
Joy – in the midst of painful circumstances.
Peace – when something you were counting on doesn’t come through.
Patience – when things aren’t going fast enough for you.
Kindness – toward those who treat you unkindly.
Goodness – toward those who have been intentionally insensitive to you.
Faithfulness – when friends have proved unfaithful.
Gentleness – toward those who have handled you roughly.
Self-control – in the midst of intense temptation.
