Proverbs of a 34 yr old man.
Love is not a work of the flesh but a fruit of the Spirit. Like other spiritual fruits we want in our lives, we tend to cultivate it through life experience than to trust in God to do it. Your relationship with God is key to growing spiritual fruit in your life. The more time and energy you devote to God the more fruit you will bear in your life. You won't even have to force it. God will put you in situations where it will come out naturally. We have to be continually connected to the Vine who is Jesus our Lord. So when fruit is needed for a particular situation God can use you. Think about how many times someone needed love or patience from you but you didn't have it at that time. Have Mercy. Amen.
