    Daily Bible Verse and Devotion for Teens and Youth on the Fruit of the Spirit

    But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, – Gal 5:22 (NLT)

    Have you ever tried to build character in your life, but realized you fell short? Maybe you tried really hard to stop being unkind, but the more you focused on trying to not do it, the more you did it.

    Trying to do the right thing and build character in your life can be challenging. Even though it’s not always easy to be a person of character, it’s the right thing to do. So how do we get from being unkind to kind? How to we get from being upset to being at peace? How do we let these fruit of the spirit become real in our lives?

    The answer is in focusing on the Holy Spirit. This verse says that the Holy Spirit produces these fruit in our lives. So instead of focusing on how many times you mess up each day by not being patient or kind, focus instead on God. Realize that He has put His holy spirit in you and so you have the ability to be kind. You’re not doing it in your own strength, but you’re relying on what’s already in you to live out a life of character.

    Choose today to believe that you’ve got what it takes to be a person that is loving, full of joy and living out the fruit of the spirit. Focus on God and realize that with His help, you can do it!
