The Fruit of the Spirit is Goodness

This meditation is the seventh of a ten part series on The Fruit of the Spirit. We often label people's actions as being good or bad. We usually find it easy to judge the actions of others, but it is more difficult to judge our own actions. God wants our actions to express excellence in virtue, morality, character, and attitude--a combined quality called 'goodness'. In this meditation you'll contemplate and explore God's goodness toward you and the fruit of goodness in your own life--the fruit of the Spirit is Goodness.

We began this series with a contemplative overview of The Fruit of the Spirit, and the next five episodes focused on the fruits of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, and Kindness. If you would like to do this particular series of biblical meditations in order, you'll want to begin with these six meditations.

I continue to appreciate everyone's patience with the release of this new meditation. At least it hasn't been seven month's again. :-) I'm praying about hiring a part-time person to help in this ministry! (See Ecclesiastes 4:9) I strongly prefer someone who is already following the work here and therefore understands what it's all about. It will be work-from-home and mostly customer service, web site editing, audio editing, and Internet marketing; so this person needs to be VERY computer savvy. If you're interested, or know someone who is, contact me and let's talk. As always, please leave a comment and let me know how God uses this mediation in your life! (Photo by Robin Zebrowski.
