    Fruit of the Spirit-Kindness(Confirmation, Pentecost)
    Those first Christians on Pentecost, washed by the Holy Spirit, went out and shared it with others not through a game of telephone, but by living a different kind of life. The kind of life the Apostle Paul says in our reading, Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Another translation says it this way: Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.

    Fruit of the Spirit Introduction
    God wants you and I to be free. And what that means that we are called to bear the fruit of the spirit in our lives all the time. God's spirit can produce fruit, peace, joy, self-control, even when we can't which is usually when we need it the most. You can be baptized, "saved," going to heaven, whatever, But are you choosing to allow God to work in your life right now?

    True Worth
    Because your worth and value is not defined by what you've done, comparing yourself to the people around you, it is not even defined by what you think of yourself. Your value is defined only by the One who made us.
