In today’s world it is hard to find anything that truly follows The Fruits Of The Spirit. When a plant grows from the ground it will bear much fruit. It is the same for our spiritual lives.
What does The Bible have to say about The Fruits Of The Spirit? Galatians 5:22-23 says, “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
It is my understanding that secrets can go against these fruits. Secrets, therefore, can be a weed to the fruits of the spirit. In today’s world it is believed that keeping a secret can be a good thing. Keeping a secret about a surprise for someone is one thing, but when we keep secrets that can negatively impact anyone else it is not done in a spirit of love, joy, peace or kindness.
Our world seems to thrive on digging up secrets on others and that does not do good for anyone!! Read the tabloids and they are always digging up dirt that may be so far from the truth. All that does is create divisions between people and we have enough chasms to navigate. The Bible also tells us to not be a stumbling block for another. What are secrets? Secrets, as far as I can tell are stumbling blocks for everyone involved. Why can’t we all just tell the truth? The truth will set us free!!!
