The Fruit Of The Spirit Contemplation
This brief practice (about 5 minutes) focuses our attention on the fruit of the Spirit. Begin by acknowledging God’s presence as you take a few slow and deep breaths. Then select one of the words of the fruit of the Spirit (love or joy… etc) and walk through each line, with about a minute on each line. End with thanks to God. Enjoy!
The practice here is to contemplate/ reflect/ consider/ set your attention on; as some say ‘look at with your minds eye’ or ‘turn your heart toward’. If – when – your mind wanders, then just bring it back to the focus on the fruit of the Spirit. As with any practice, this becomes more natural the more we do it.
