Do you agree with me that all born again believers do not have the fruit of the Spirit in equal abundance? As I look here in the Holman Christian Standard Bible and I read "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23), it's obvious that some believers may be more loving or more patient, for example, than other believers. Colossians 3:12 tells us to put on "heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." (HCSB) Now, can we as Christians, though the help of God's Spirit, improve upon these weak areas? If we lack patience or self control or even kindness, can we through prayer and scripture study and meditation, improve in these areas? I feel too many of us settle where we are at and do not look to improve upon our weaknesses. Your thoughts?
