GOODNESS - The Fruit Of The Spirit As An Antidote To Consumerism

A picture of an apple

There are things that are good for us, and there are things that are not good for us. This is the essence of goodness.

Are we good for the planet or are we bad for the planet.

Are we good for people, or are we bad for people.

Over the course of this blog series we have seen that essentially, the consumerist lifestyle is bad for the planet, and is bad for people.

As people who seek to cultivate the fruit of the spirit in our lives, then we must constantly ask the question "are we beneficial", in terms of our actual impact on lives and the earth.

A lot of the time the answer is no: from the cars we drive to the energy we use, from the food we eat to the clothes we wear.

We must constantly ask 'is there a better way': for transport, energy, food and clothes and for all areas of our lives.

May we be beneficial, may we exude goodness, and may we breathe life wherever we are.
