Friday Favorites – Choices

Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness.

Faithfulness. Gentleness. Self-control.

These are choices I make for what I’d like to see in my life.

These are choices you can make as well.

To be sure, when we make these choices, they don’t always manifest perfectly.

But if we do not CHOOSE them a to begin with; i.e. become aware of them, we will have no place to start.

Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV)22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
