You’re familiar with the fruit of the Spirit, right? Love, joy, peace, longsuffering (or forbearance), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As a parent, it’s not easy exercising these gifts while raising our kiddos. Well, today, love. There are a lot of times when kids break the rules in the house. How many times have you lost your cool and said things that weren’t so loving? I’m right there with you. I’ve done it. I was reading My Utmost for His Highest a few days ago, and it reminded me that we need to be obsessed with God. That obsession keeps us in the proper mindset where we can show more love when we’re not necessarily feeling it.
