Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
"The fruit of the Spirit is not push, drive, climb,
grasp, and trample. Don’t let the rat-racing world keep you on its treadmill.
There is a legitimate place for blood, sweat, and tears; but it should have its
roots in the call of God, not in the desire to get ahead. Life is more than a
climb to the top of the heap" (Richard J. Foster, 1942– ).
In Galatians 5:22-23, the apostle Paul tells us, “The
fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Thankfully, with
the fruits of the spirit, we can step aside from the rat race and enjoy the
relationship God wants to have with Him and our fellowman.
God, thank You that we can have a right relationship with
You and with our neighbors. Amen.
In God we trust!
