Check out :: Brodie's post on the fruit of the Spirit

Brodie over at view from the basement found this pic and I think it makes so much sense to where I am at just now... His article on the FRUIT not FRUITS of the Spirit is very good and worthy of your time ::

Now am I being pedantic with this? I think not - the reason that I think it's important to recognise that the fruit is one is the it stops us from examining each aspect of the fruit in some reductionist way.
