My plan is to read and discuss a chapter every week, starting this week with both the Introduction and Chapter 1.
If you are the kind of reader who usually skips the introduction, I'd invite you to read this one. For one thing, it answers the question, "Why FRUITFUL Living?" John 15:8 says, "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples". Galatians 5:22 says, "The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control."
Who doesn't want more love, joy, peace, and so on in their life? This book, and these 5 practices, are a way to get there.
5 Practices for Fruitful Living is not light reading. There is some meat on these pages, and I acknowledge there are easier books out there. I hope you find the time you spend is worth it!!
I'll write more about chapter one throughout the week. For now, I'll start with a question -- what practices have already been part of your personal spiritual growth? For me, it's absolutely about worship, daily devotions, and all the service projects I've been part of over the years
How about for you?
