What is the function of the fruit of the Spirit?

“What is the function of the fruit of the Spirit? Why does God enable these qualities of love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, patience, meekness, and self-control shine forth from our lives? Is it for our private enjoyment? No, God produces the fruit of the Spirit in our lives so that we can share this fruit with others.”

Sharing.  That is what NeedlePrayer is about for me.  It’s sharing my joy, my sadness, my longing, my faith. It’s about reaching out to others, offering them the road to the blessings God has given me.
