Proving What is Acceptable
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) PROVING what is ACCEPTABLE unto the Lord. Eph. 5:9-10
What is one of the tests to know if something is ACCEPTABLE to the Lord? The fruit of the Spirit! :)
Does it promote LOVE, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance? (Gal. 5:22-23)
Does it hurt you physically, mentally, emotionally, SPIRITUALLY?
Does it hurt someone else physically, mentally emotionally, SPIRITUALLY?
Does it "stumble" you or someone else?
Does it promote LOVE as well as the rest of the fruits of the Spirit?
If not, it's not love....
The fruit of the Spirit...is a TEST...to PROVE what is ACCEPTABLE unto the Lord.
