Nothing works against the fruit of the Spirit. When you start to practice it, and you start to give yourself to practicing it, see what happens in you. You get stronger, you get bigger, you get more like Jesus. As you sow a fruit of the Spirit into someone’s life and you practice the fruit of the Spirit, you reap more and more of the nature of God back into your own. You can’t sow potatoes and reap rhubarb, right? You can’t! So what you sow you reap. If you sow peace you are going to get peace. If you sow love you are going to be loved.
(from Cultivating The Fruit Of The Spirit) Graham Cooke
