The story of the Good Samaritan is reenacted every day. Whether it's a family on the side of the road with car trouble, a homeless person sleeping over an outdoor heating vent, or a panhandler asking for spare change, we either pass by or reach out in kindness. This "Fruit of the Spirit Bible" study will inspire kindness toward others by revealing God's kindness to you. The eight-volume "Fruit of the Spirit Bible Studies" series not only helps you discover what the Bible says about the vital traits that the Holy Spirit produces in believers, but also moves you beyond reflection and discussion to application. Designed for use in small groups or personal devotions, the interactive format will help you grow in your ability to reflect the character of Jesus. This title is revised to include: expanded leader's notes; between-studies applications; and suggestions for prayer.
