There are so many things in the world that are out of our control. The weather, sickness, taxes, other peoples actions, etc. Really all the things we want to change from time to time.
The fruit of the spirit from Galatians 5 are; Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control. These are the things that are in our control. With these things we can affect some of the items that are out of our control, like the emotions of others. Although we cannot directly control other peoples emotions, we can affect it by the things in our control. If we act from kindness to a person with a hardened heart, we stand the chance to influence them to soften their heart and maybe they will choose to display Joy.
What fruit do you need to control today?
