'Be Kind to One Another...' (July 1998)

July 1998
Volume 7, Number 7

In our bustling, impersonal society, kindness is a rarity, and acts of kindness have a great chance of making the news! This fruit of the Spirit often ripples out to touch the lives of those far removed from the original act. This world could use more godly kindness!  (CGG Photo)

Personal from John W. Ritenbaugh
The Fruit of the Spirit:

Kindness, the fifth fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5, goes hand-in-hand with love. It is an active expression of love toward God and fellow man. As we come out of this calloused world, we must develop kindness through the power of God's Spirit.
