Podcast 68 – Why the fruit of the Spirit is not a checklist
If you’ve been in Christian circles for any length of time, you’ve heard a sermon or talk about the fruit of the Spirit. You’ve seen it on plaques in people’s homes, you’ve heard children’s songs about this list of virtues.
Our human tendency is to take list of character qualities like that and make them into a checklist that we have to strive toward. We feel good if we accomplish some of them in a given day, and bad and guilty if we don ‘t.
Is that what the Apostle Paul had in mind when he made the list in the first place? In this episode of the podcast I”m going to show you, what I believe to be Paul’s intention when he created this list of character qualities, and give you some ideas about how you can approach this list with your family (children) to help them understand the true source of those kinds of amazing character traits.
