Started reading a new book today called Fruit Happens. The fruits of the spirit are faithfullness, PEACE, patience, love, self-control, joy, kindness, goodness, and gentleness. By their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:20 The fruits they are talking about are not like an apple or pear, but something that grows. The Spirit part of the fruit is God living inside us and when He lives there it changes us. Each fruit is one more way of living your life. or dealing with others, and learning to be more like God.
