Fruit Flies in Our Faith: Nurturing and Sharing the Fruit of the Spirit
Written by Annie Paden

“The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22-23

As Christians, we are each blessed with the Fruit of the Spirit. What happens when we let our fruit sit unused? Spiritual Fruit Flies! Using stories filled with transparency and splashes of humor, Annie Paden examines the spiritual fruit flies which can distract us from nurturing and sharing the Fruit of the Spirit. Worry, temptations, impatience, bad habits…the list is long and we can spend our time swatting at spiritual fruit flies instead of living out the unique fruit God has given us. This valuable guide helps us deepen our awareness of the Fruit of the Spirit. As we learn to nurture the Spirit’s fruit in our everyday lives, we are able to eliminate those pesky fruit flies. We can begin sharing fruit with our families, our church and the greater world around us.
