The Fruit of the Spirit

"Lord, fill my son's heart with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. Amen" (WP ebook p 28)

Today we will look at Love, the first in the list of the fruits of the Spirit.  The Bible tells us that God is love, yet the word is used loosely in our society today.  We love our cars, our new toy, our new shoes, etc.  How can we make the word LOVE mean the true meaning from the Bible...God is Love.  What does that mean to you and your boy(s)?  How do you teach them just how huge that word is? And it is huge.  We have all had a situation where we have had someone in our lives that we really didn't love yet when we prayed for God to change our hearts, He did and showed us how to love and gave us that capacity.  Maybe that is the key.  God is the only one that can take that watered down word and make it whole again. 

God I pray that you show us Mom's how to show our boys the real meaning of Love and that You are love!  Touch our boys heart and show them Your love in ways that move their heart closer to you.  In Jesus name! Amen!
