What are the Fruit of the Holy Spirit?
In Galatians 5, Paul uses the metaphor of fruit to show the work of God's Spirit in our lives. These marks of Christian character can give children great encouragement as they progress in their faith development. As we yield to the Holy Spirit's direction in our lives and community, the inevitable result will be the characteristics listed in Galatians 5:22-23.
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a person or community living in accord with the Holy Spirit, according to chapter 5 of the Epistle to the Galatians: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." The fruit is contrasted with the works of the flesh which immediately precede it in this chapter. (Wikipedia)
