God’s Word for Today + Galatians 5:22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
In this season, we are growing in our love for God and for one another when we are connected to the Holy Spirit. How do we get that connection and what are the signs of our growth? Paul gives us a list and by looking at the "Fruit of the Spirit" we can know how to best serve both God and our country.
O Beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain
for purple mountained majesty above the fruited plain
America! America! God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea
-Katherine E. Bates (1859-1929)
