The next fruit of the Spirit we are going to cover is kindness. Kindness is something this world could use a lot more of. You will be hard pressed to ever go a day in your life where you don’t meet someone who needs a kind word. Jesus modeled kindness so well during His time on earth, never turning anyone away who wanted to see Him or talk to Him. He always had time to speak a kind word or do a kind deed, and as His children, we should desire to do the same.
In this series, we are going to take a closer look at the fruit of the Spirit we should be bearing as followers of Christ. Now, you might be asking, “Why does God want us to bear fruit?” He wants us to bear fruit because He wants our lives to be tasty. In other words, He wants us to live lives that are so attractive that people are drawn to us like a hungry man is drawn to a plate of good food. The Lord wants us to live lives that are both good to others and good for others, and we do that by living according to the Fruit of the Spirit.
