“I say then:  walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”  Gal. 5:16

V. 22-23 “ . . . the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, gentleness, and self-control, which such there is no law.”

We have bottles of prescription medicines, vitamin and mineral supplements, special remedies to enable the physical body to function properly.  Where is the nourishment and supplements for our spiritual bodies?  I would think the fruit of the Spirit should be on everyone’s menu for each day.  Let us seek them in God’s Word daily, the Holy Bible.  Pray for them to become part of our inner beings, and practice them so we may grow into the godly examples God desires of us to bring glory to His name. Amen

God Be in My Head

~ Henry Walford Davies

.

God be in my head, and in my understanding;

God be in mine eyes, and in my looking;

God be in my mouth and in my speaking;

God be in my heart, and in my thinking;

God be at mine end, and at my departing.

Where did sin come from
If God said everything was good?
Was it in the fruit of that Tree
That stood in that dense wood?

Did it come from a magic spiel
That the subtle reptile spoke,
Conning the man and woman
Into believing the lying bloke?

Why did they easily trust
The sly serpentine’s advice?
Why didn’t Adam and Eve
Just eat some plain white rice?

How did the serpent know
Of the Tree and God’s law?
Did it really know enough
To detect this prideful flaw?

And how did God know
Mankind had eaten the fruit?
Did He check them each day
For any stolen loot?

Mankind then hid from Him.
What told them to beware?
Did their vision clear their sight
When they saw that they were bare?

I think this thing called sin
Was a freewill flub-de-dub,
One giant step for mankind
And one perpetual stub!
