This week's lesson (February 11-17): the Holy Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit

To be honest, I think you should skip this week's lesson -- just go straight to next week's.

You see, next week's lesson is about spiritual gifts.

This week's is about "the fruits of the Spirit."

I mean, next week you get to talk about exciting stuff:
  • Signs!
  • Wonders!
  • Miracles!
But this week, you need to talk about love . . . and patience . . . and gentleness . . . and kindness . . . and all the other "touchy-feely" stuff that you already know you should do.

What's more, you already know how God develops these "fruits" in your life: yes, you know He's going to put you in situations where you need them!

(That's why you should never pray for patience, by the way. No, you do that, and He's going to give you people with whom you need to be patient!)

In short, this week's lesson deals with all the ways God helps you deal with difficult people in a difficult world . . .

And who needs that?
