ďBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.Ē

Galations 6: 22, 23

I have been making a lot of macaroni salad in the last three weeks and each time I have added something new to it. Every time that I add something new, it tastes better. We need to do the same thing with the way we treat people.

If we are only extending gentleness to someone, we need to add the rest of Godís Ingredients that He tells us to do in this verse. It is only by employing all of these character traits that people will come to fully understand the Heart of Jesus.

How have you been treating your family? Have you demonstrated all of these actions to your husband, your wife, your children, your parents, your sisters and brothers, and to your friends? If not, then it is no wonder at all that they donít believe that you love them. When we donít think other people love us, it is almost impossible to believe that God can Love us.

We need to allow Jesus to take control of our heart completely. Not only will people feel our love for them, they will come to understand and believe that Jesus Loves them. Letís use all of Godís Ingredients in the way we treat people. It will make the Heart of Jesus happy.
