God's Promise of Rainbows & Fruit
A rainbow is sunlight shining through drops of rain. The different colors in the rainbow depend on the position of the rain drop as it falls & reflects the sun. That's how the fruits of the Spirit work in our lives as we live life in a variety of positions. As our life (the raindrop) circumstances change, the Holy Spirit (the sun) will provide the light (love) that colors (virtues) our lives in a variety of ways. When we are in a chaotic situation the Spirit brings peace, when someone does us wrong the Spirit brings self-control, when our world gets rocked the Spirit shows faithfulness. Remember it's the fruit of the Spirit, not the fruit of you.
