The Fruit of Goodness — 15 Comments

  1. Evelyn, I have been thoroughly enjoying your Fruit of the Spirit series, and every single one has been excellent, but this one on God’s goodness is my all-time favorite. I love the ideas you outlined here, the flow of the article too, the Scripture nuggets, conversation starter, and the prayer. God is good, and you are His servant, humbly sharing the Spirit fruits so faithfully. I loved especially your brownie illustration. God shows His goodness through tender children too. It brings me back to my teaching days, when my kids would trade lunch items, and the joy it would bring them, and the parent who would on occasion surprise me with a steak and cheese sandwich.Thank you, sister. You did it again–I am either crying or chuckling as I read these characters, brought to life by your skillful storytelling. Keep telling your stories. you are excellent at it, and you are led by the Holy Spirit.

    • Thank you so much, Diane. I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. God keeps reminding me of the fruit of the spirit. It seems that every time I turn around, I encounter Galatians 5:22-23! I’m so glad you enjoy my stories. I can’t seem to stop telling them. I had a dear cousin who was “the” storyteller of my mother’s family. I could sit for hours listening to Betty tell about our people. Thank you for sharing the story of your teaching experience with the kind parent who brought a meal to you. God sends just the right people to us at different seasons of our life, doesn’t He!

  2. Thank you! I pray that he will continue to fill me with his Holy Spirit so that I will also gain much fruit!

    • Lee Ann, I also pray He will continue to fill me with His Holy Spirit. He is faithful to do so when we ask, isn’t He?
