LENT 2017 Lenten Activities + Prayers - Day 27


As we continue our consideration of the “Fruit of Spirit,” it’s important to remember that these fruits are not only attributes for us to prize and prioritize as important, this fruit also describes what God is like; and this list of fruits are some the very character traits of God that we are called to emulate as image-bearers (Gen. 1:26).

The sixth fruit is GOODNESS. The Greek word used for goodness in this passage is agathosyne and it can mean generosity, beneficence, and virtue.

Take some time today to consider God's goodness. How has God been good, generous, and kind to you? Don't just think in generality, take some time to thank for him for a specific goodness. And ask him to help you emulate the very goodness he has shown you in your interactions with others.
