Fruit of the Spirit Galations 5:22-23 6/26/08
We all want to know if we exhibit,
What is known as the fruit of the Spirit.
Do we live in peace, with our neighbors, our God?
Their successes, do we envy or applaud?
Patience is something we're afraid to pray for,
Because then God might make us wait some more.
Do we pick and choose, where kindness we give,
Or is it what we strive daily to live?
Goodness is what we want others to see,
But only God can make it to be.
To what are we faithful in our own lives?
Are we faithful to God, or is it a guise?
Are we gentle, humble, meek as a lamb,
Waiting our turn to the Holy Land?
Do we have self-control over our lusts,
Or will we be eaten by the locusts?
Praise the Lord for His wonderful ways!
Praise Him all your fruitful livelong days!
Jesus has risen and taken away death,
And His Holy Spirit controls every breath.
