Fruitful Living!

The Christian Life was intended to be a fruitful life. The fruit of the Spirit is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, & self control. As we grow in our intimacy with Christ, & learn to "walk in His Spirit", the fruit of the Spirit will appear in our lives. I thought that I would illustrate the fruit of the Spirit through the world of nature & animals. The first fruit I would like to examine is Love. Let's take a peek at the many facets of Love. I hope Ewe enjoy it!
"Love bears all things"

Love is when  Ewe know that Ewe were meant to do life together!
Love is demonstrating a desire for closeness with the ones we care about!

"Loves Believes All Things!"
Love is watching over the young that Ewe are responsible for!

Love is seen spending time together & enjoying one another's company!

"Hopes All Things!"
Love is taking time to feed the Hungry!

Love is caring for the weak & vulnerable!

"Love Endures All Things!"
Love is standing together in a difficult situation & supporting one another!
Love is sharing one another's burdens!

"Love Never Fails!"
Love is being willing to sacrifice Ewer life for others!
Love is celebrating our differences!
One of the greatest needs we have in our lives is to Love & be loved! Sheep also share this need for love, & embrace the love of their Shepherd! They are most content when their Shepherd is near!

Love is the Greatest!
Love is being willing to "die" for the ones Ewe love!
As Ewe travel through Ewer day today, know that Ewe are greatly loved by the Good Shepherd. Why not "Share" the overflow of that "Love" with others!

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, & everyone that loves, is born of God & knows Him."1 John 4:7
