“Kindness: A Fruit of the Spirit”

Blessings folk!

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

Kindness -
chrestotes - moral kindness, integrity, kindness

We as believers are to be the very manifestation of the kindness of God:

2Pe 1:5-7
Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge,
and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,
and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.

Brotherly kindness reflects godliness.
Brotherly kindness reflects love.

The Lord has been kind to us.
May we be kind one to another.

Eph 2:7
so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

Rom 2:4
Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?

Rom 11:22

Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off.
