In Galatians 5 the apostle Paul explains to the believers of Galatia that the Holy Spirit helps Christians to avoid harmful and destructive behaviors and works to develop excellent character traits in them. These character traits are pleasing to God, and they also make the lives of Christians better here on earth. Paul lists these traits in verses 22 and 23: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law” (NIV). You will write your illustration essay on one of these traits. You may not write on love, since that is the trait I used for your examples in this session, but you may choose one of the others on which to write.
– Using techniques suggested on pages 89-94 and 288-89 in McWhorter, choose one of the fruits of the Spirit (other than love) listed in Galatians 5:22-23 on which you feel you could write an excellent illustration essay. Take into account the characteristics of illustration essays from this week’s chapter reading.
