By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (Matthew 7:16-17).
The fruit of the Spirit is love.
Is this person loving?
The fruit of the Spirit is joy.
Does this person bring joy?
The fruit of the Spirit is peace.
Is this person a peacemaker?
And patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control? You know what to look for. If you don’t see the fruit, you gotta wonder about the tree.
Judge wisely, Beloved.
