We long to be this kind of person. While we are all at different places in our faith journey, these are the goals we long to achieve.
Joy I have inner contentment and purpose in spite of my circumstances.
Peace I am free from anxiety because things are right between God, myself, and others.
Faithfulness I have established a good name with God and with others based on my long-term loyalty to those relationships.
Self-Control I have the power, through Christ, to control myself.
Humility I choose to esteem others above myself.
Love I sacrificially and unconditionally love and forgive others.
1 John 4:10-12
Patience I take a long time to overheat and endure patiently under the unavoidable pressures of life.
Kindness/Goodness I choose to do the right things in my relationships with others.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
Gentleness I am thoughtful, considerate, and calm in dealing with others.
Hope I can cope with the hardships of life and with death because of the hope I have in Jesus Christ.
