Josie’s mother was helping her get ready for her dance recital. Her stomach was flipping over from nervousness, and she was afraid.
“There are going to be so many people there, Mom. What if I mess up?”
Her mother smiled at her, and reminded her of her Sunday school lesson from church the previous week. “Remember the fruit of the Spirit, Josie?”
Josie remembered. The fruit of the Spirit was what would happen in her life if she walked with God and listened to the Holy Spirit.
“One of the fruits is peace. Maybe we should pray for me to have peace, Mom. I could use some good fruit today!”
Josie and her mother prayed for the recital, and Josie felt much better as the peace of God filled up her heart and stilled her butterfly stomach!
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
How can you get “good fruit” today?
