‘Fruit of the Spirit is … Kindness’ (thoughts shared by Lisa Thompson, President of Georgia WMU/WEM) – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23a (NIV). Kindness, a noun, is defined as “the state or quality of being kind”. Kind, an adjective, is “of a good or benevolent nature or disposition, as a person having, showing, or proceeding from benevolence”.   During a recent Skype interaction with our daughter-in-law and grandchildren, the conversation between Abigail, 4, and her mother let us know that a new friend of Abigail’s...

‘Fruit of the Spirit is … Kindness’ (thoughts shared by Karen Pace, Consultant for Georgia WMU/WEM) –Stress, family, work, church involvement, lost people, trying to get caught up . . . you get the idea.  We have a lot going on and a lot of concerns!  Ever notice in the midst of all our “good” how conflict and tension seem to intrude in our lives and there’s often apparent unrest in some area or relationship?  Sometimes I just want to stomp it down so it can never reappear in my life again.  Fortunately, His Spirit enables us to rise above anything and display the character of God who is our life.  Recently, I have been walking with some friends through a difficult time...

‘Fruit of the Spirit is … Kindness’ (thoughts shared by Lauren Sullens, Children’s Equipper for Georgia WMU Executive Board) – As I was expecting my first child, I was blessed to take a class about mentoring.  It was based on Titus 2:3-5. “In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine.  They are to teach what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands and children, to be sensible, pure, good homemakers, and submissive to their husbands, so that God’s message will not be slandered.”  God absolutely laid that scripture on my heart as my life’s calling.  It’s a good thing too, because...
