The Fruit of The World

A walk through the mall tonight confirmed to me just how counter-cultural Christianity is.  According to the t-shirts I saw, our society places a high value on being bored, not caring, and being temperamental. (If you're shocked that there's an "a" in that word, know that I am too.)  I contrast that with the virtues that God desires to see in us:  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, self-control, moderation, faithfulness, thinking of others, being pure, reverent, dignified, sober-minded and level-headed, submissive, sensible and steadfast.  Quite the contrast!  The children of God are not to be quarrelsome or divisive.  To the world, we will be labeled timid and weak; to God, we will be pleasing in His eyes.
