In his Letter to the Galatians, the Apostle Paul writes: "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."
I've been thinking about the tree pictured here. It's real! It's a product of many grafts done by a professor at Cornell University. It reminds me of fireworks! It also makes me think of how beautiful it is when we let the Spirit bear fruit in us, God uses us to add many different qualities and gifts to that fruit.
