Are you someone you like to hang out with? If you had a choice, would you be your own friend? Do you like who you are? Do you enjoy your own company?
Joy: not grouchy and discontent: radiating happiness that transcends circumstances
Peace: unflustered, unfazed by what’s going on around you, trusting in God beyond what the circumstances might seem to dictate
Patience: peacefully waiting for God to move, knowing that He’s got things under control
Kindness: caring deeply about others and expressing that to them
Goodness: displaying the character of Christ, godliness; striving to always do the right thing
Faithfulness: displaying an unwavering faith in God and not straying from your walk with Him
Gentleness: not harsh, having a soft hand and voice when it comes to dealing with others, no matter their attitude
Self-control: not reacting to or following along with other’s bad behavior; not being erratic so that people don’t know what to expect from you
Doesn’t that just seem like a person you want to hang out with? I know I’d sure like to have that friend.
Guess that means I should work on being that friend.
