Nine Fruits of the Spirit: Goodness
Robert Strand, one of the most successful authors in the CBA market, believes that an understanding of the qualities of a Christian deserve a close look. To that end, Strand has developed a nine-book study series on the fruits of the spirit, emphasizing not only that a properly-balanced Christian life must include love, joy, peace, patience, etc., but that God will judge us on our willingness to incorporate them into our daily walk. Written in Strand’s famous storytelling style, each book in the series includes study questions and special insights.
Agathos (Greek), describes that which, a person being good in character or constitution, will be beneficial in its effect on others.
"Good" and "goodness" are two very popular words in the vocabulary of our day. We like to think that what we do is "good" to benefit others. But what really is "goodness"? Before we consider "being" good and "doing" good, we will be needing a working definition of goodness. The measuring rod and the standard has been set by God and not by humans. God is the measure of all things, including goodness and what it means. So we'll attempt to start with an understanding of the "goodness" of God as a harvest of the Spirit's working in our lives.
But the fruit of the spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.... - Galations 5:22–23
