“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law,” Galatians 5:22-23, English Standard Version (ESV.)
Is there a law against love?
Are there commandments
against joy and peace?
What about patience, kindness,
and just plain goodness?
What about the right
to be gentle,
the right to control oneself,
especially in public?
No law can stand
the fruit of the Holy Spirit!
