Introduction "What happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in the orchard - things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people." Gal. 5:22-23
