The more we pursue the gifts of the Spirit,
The more that our lives will blossom with fruit.
Our lives are changed and take on new beauty
When love, joy and peace and kindness take root.
The world around us has need for this fruit
To answer and heal so many great needs.
Perhaps our example may bring hope for some
As our lives well-lived are sowing good seeds.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, termperance..."
Galatians 5:22 KJV
