God pressed on me to look at the Fruits of the Spirit in these trying times. I do not at all mean to say these words are on par with the Bible, but perhaps they can make the Fruits of the Spirit speak to us in a fresh way.
I did some analytics and looked at different lexicons of the Greek for the verses talking about the fruits of the Spirit and this is what I came up with. First, of course, I will share the verses in their original context.
Galatians 5:22, 23
22 But the fruit of the Ruach is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control—against such things there is no law.
And now here is what I came up with. Let me know what you think!
Fruits of the Spirit:
Do love and kindness to others
Show joy and goodness with your emotions
Be peaceful with others and faithful to God
Exercise patience with yourself and gentleness to others
If you do only this, you will have self-control and be a law abiding citizen
