Got Fruit…

What has pride ever done for anyone?
Only the admiration of yourself.
What has meekness ever done for anyone?
Only the respect of others.

Has a self-righteous attitude ever benefited anyone?
Only preventing you from learning more truth.
Has a faithful attitude ever benefited anyone?
Only to help you learn all truth.

How has selfishness ever made you rich?
Only you can enjoy your riches.
How has kindness and goodness made you rich?
Only storing up riches in heaven.

What has ever become of vengeance?
Only a bitter soul full of hate.
What has ever become of joy?
Only to have a peaceful soul.

What is the outcome of hate?
Only to never have love?
What is the outcome of love?
Only to never know hate?

What do you get from babbling?
Only to be considered a fool.
What do you get from self-control?
Only to be considered wise.
