Friday Five: Bursting with Fruit Flavor

Reverendmother here...

First, don't miss the new "Ask a Matriarch" feature below. Leave a comment--we all have wisdom to share, even us newbies--or submit your own head-scratcher for next week. And thanks again to those seasoned pastors who offer their expertise!

On to the F5:
Well, those of us in the United States are on high alert for air travel. Thank heaven, it appears that a huge disaster has been averted. Meanwhile, dreadful conflicts continue in the Middle East and around the world. We here at RGBP certainly hope and pray for safety, peace and fullness of life for all the peoples of the world.

Galatians 5 describes the fruit of the Spirit. With all the sadness and despair out there, we certainly need it! So, the Friday Five is simple. Pick any five of the following attributes and go wherever the Spirit leads you... your choice! Suggestions: When have you experienced this attribute? When have you struggled with it? Or who embodies it for you?

Or if you're feeling light-hearted--just assign a fruit to each one. I think Generosity is a Banana, don't you?


As always, let us know if you play. And I will refrain from throwing overripe fruits of the Spirit at you if you link directly to your post :-D

  10. I didn't participate, but it did cause me to remember the way I learned all the fruits of the Spirit in elementary school - a VBS song, of course.

    "The fruit of the Spirit show God's love in you. A seed of love is planted and grows, and the Spirit shines through.

    You gotta have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness for these are the fruit of God's Spirit.

    You gotta have goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control for these are the fruit of God's Spirit."

  11. Fruity Friday Five
