Holy Spirit at Work

There is a time in life when we all have benefitted from the kindness of another person. The dictionary defines kindness as being generous, helpful and caring about other people. The world has coined the term random act of kindness and it means to do something for someone, usually a stranger that brings them joy. But what is kindness in the life of a person of faith?

I have a friend who has a lifestyle of showing kindness; if you have a conversation with her, you will discover that it’s her way of life. If you are unable to get to the supermarket, she will do your shopping. If you need food, she would give you a measure of supplies on a regular basis. Guess what? Her kindness extends to everyone, I have also been the recipient of her kindness. If you need prayer, you can call on her too. For her, it’s not a random act of kindness; it is so much more!

What is the motivation for that kind of service? Galatians 5:2-23 TPT gives insight into her actions; But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.” The Holy Spirit living on the inside produces fruit in our lives. The fruit is the evidence that tells about the tree because trees produce fruit after its kind. 

What do your actions say about you? Can those around you identify who you are based on the kind of fruit produced in your life? Take a moment and reread those verses and evaluate your life. In my friend’s life, we can see kindness in action; let us spend time in the presence of God and allow the Holy Spirit to produce fruit in our lives.

Thought for Today: Friend, examine your fruit.

Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
