PRAY // Compare the fruit listed in the verse you just read to your own life. Do these qualities sound like you? Which areas do you think you need to grow? After that, compare this list to the person you’re currently dating. Do you see the same fruit in their life? Even if you’re not dating right now, consider these qualities before you start dating a certain guy or girl. While we will never perfect these qualities, we should see steady progress after we decide to follow Jesus—both in our lives and in the person we date. Which fruit is lacking in your life? Today, ask God to show you new ways to start growing in that area.
