Fruit of the Spirit Challenge: Goodness

WE are on week 6!! If you are new to this challenge and would like to join or you are curious to what it is week one is here. Would love to have you join. 🙂

Devotional:
Goodness is your actions. It is how you act. Are your actions showing Gods light or are you dwelling in the dark? Goodness comes from the heart, because often how our hearts feel is how we act. Goodness is a readiness to do good when the time comes. Goodness does everything it can to show kindness.

Rebekah in genesis 24:15-20 is a good example of goodness. She gave the man something to drink when asked and she gave his camels something to drink without being asked.
WE need to be ready to help others as soon as an opportunity shows up. WE should always be kind and full of goodness. When we do good we need to remember to keep are attitude good because otherwise it does not really count.

Dear Lord,
Teach me to be full of goodness. Have me to be able to help others when ever I am given the chance. Have me to keep my attitude good when I help others. thank you Lord.
Amen

    Thank-you for writing this devotional about goodness! As I read through the study I was reminded of the importance of seeking God for the fruits of the Spirit. In our “me-first” culture encouraging people to do good is really important.

    There are nine fruit of the Spirit, but I am only finding 8 on your blog: joy, faith, goodness, temperance, gentleness, love, peace, long suffering. I am getting started in this study; so, did you combine two together?

    Please let me know.
