GPW Minute 4/30: God's Gift of Kindness!

God’s Intention for You Is the Fruit of the Spirit! Welcome the Spirit’s Gift of KINDNESS A WORD FROM THE LORD (Read slowly, welcoming the Spirit’s gifts to you) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:23-24 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT Our best friends are those who care enough to truly listen. How are you today, really? Who would listen if you shared your heart? Find a good friend who will listen without judgment, and be a friend to those you serve! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “We pray to You,  dear Father, as little children who call upon their loving fathers. For the Spirit’s gift of kindness and for those who are kind enough to listen to me, I thank you, Lord. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the Holy Spirit who imparts the fruit of His presence: kindness. MARKER OF WELLBEING: Intellectual As I grow in God’s grace of Intellectual KINDNESS, I am finding joy in CURIOSITY, listening and speaking in a beneficial way.
