So I was walking through the park the other day (because apparently I enjoy doing that nowadays). And I realised that I was completely, ridiculously, unapologetically happy. For no apparent reason. So maybe joyful is a better description?
And I realised that Joy is one of the fruits of the spirit. You know those attributes that our parents are forever telling us to try to acquire. Love, joy, peace, goodness etc. My parents have always told me that God gives us specific spiritual gifts. Like speaking in tongues or prophesying. So maybe it’s the same for the fruits of the spirit? Even though we should obviously try to have all of them, maybe there’s a specific one that’s always at work in our lives?
Even though I feel like mine is Joy, I can definitely see other fruits in other people. My older brother for example, his is definitely gentleness. Because it takes a lot to get him angry and even when he is angry, he reacts ridiculously rationally (something I definitely need to work on 😂).
And my best friend’s is faithfulness. Regardless of the situation you put her in, she will always be the same. I wonder what it’s like for other people?
