The purpose of this book is to present a way that a person may always have improvement in the quality of life through bringing attention to living the characteristics of the "Fruit of the Spirit" established in Galatians 5:22-23. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." There are suggested ideas for implementing the traits of the Fruit of the Spirit in daily life. Charts are provided to record progress on this implementation for personal reflection and/or small group discussion. A person leans on faith in moments of crisis. If a person consciously makes the characteristics of the "fruit of the spirit" an ongoing response to all situations in life, he will become stronger in his faith and get the best out of life. There is unlimited power when a person has a faith that results in these qualities. Improvement in a person's life can be outward; that is, seen by others. It can also be experienced by the way a person thinks or psychological improvement in a person's personal outlook on life. This can happen, even if there is limited physical improvement; although many studies support the fact that an optimistic outlook has a definite positive impact on physical healing. Faith implies a positive attitude that believes one will always improve, even if very small, until the day one dies. In summary, every person can continually improve his or her life by living by the qualities of the "Fruit of the Spirit": love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When you make these qualities a part of everyday life, life becomes the best it can be. This book is an explanation of each characteristic with the challenge and opportunity to implement each as a part of a person's experience. There is also an original oil painting by Dr. Jarvis to represent each characteristic.

In the Bible, the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon are considered books of poetry. In this book, I’m like an artist demonstrating a measure of the written, creative, and recreative power of God, using words like patterns, shapes, colors, and designs of all kinds interwoven, overlapping, mixing them together into creative beauty. May you enjoy reading these inspirational and biblical messages in poetic form, as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. —Nathan Ware
