‘Fruit of the Spirit is … Goodness’ (thoughts shared by Cathy Dennis, Recording Secretary for Georgia WMU/WEM) – Providing the final devotion on Goodness I wondered what else I could add to what these wonderful women had already shared.  As I looked up the meaning of goodness it provided synonyms such as virtue, righteousness, integrity, truthfulness.  There are more, but you get the idea.  As children of God, He wants us to be good, to do good and to show goodness to others.  From the beginning of creation, the word “good” has been recognized as something positive.  God created the land and sea, the animals and His greatest creation – man, and at the end the...
