If fruitfulness reveals the condition (healthy/unhealthy) and extent (shallow/deep) the roots, how is your “spiritual tree” looking these days? 🦚
I feel that I fluctuate. The parts of the fruit of the Spirit that stand out to me most today are joy, peace, and patience — these are attributes that I desire to cultivate, but then I often act against my own best interests by insisting on doing things my way.
So, instead of persisting with this misguided attitude, I need to remember to simply trust God’s plan and timing, rather than focusing on what I can perceive with my own limited senses. After all, when I remember to hold this perspective, then joy, peace and patience can (and should) become the default condition of my heart and mind.
So what about you? (You can reply in the comments if you like, but consider this more of a personal reflection time for you and the Lord). How are your spiritual roots, branches, and buds looking these days? And what changes, if any, need to be made?
