Today as we were traveling home in the car from a Bible Study, I was surprised when the little 2-year-old daughter of one of the couples who were in attendance at the Bible Study quoted some verses (Gal. 5:22,23) about the fruit of the Spirit, along with the reference!
The Fruit of the Spirit
The mother told me that her little daughter was asking to learn to read. They have a wood motto that my brother-in-law made and sent here to the Philippines hanging on their wall. He has blessed many here with his unique ministry of making beautifully done Scripture verse plaques that we have been able to share, especially at our annual Bible reading rewards dinners every January. They taught their daughter the verses on the motto, and now their little daughter can say the words when they point to them! What a wonderful way to learn to read! 🙂 Doesn’t this little 2-year-old girl inspire us? 🙂 I wonder how many of you can quote the fruits of the Spirit from memory?
The little girl in the above picture is taken of her a few weeks ago. She was here in our home with her parents for a Bible study, and actually went to sleep before we finished, while standing up! She was standing, leaning on a nearby chair as if she is praying! It was so cute! I got my phone and took a picture of it to share with you. 🙂
