1. Turn Off Your Extension Cords When They’re Not In Use

Whenever something is plugged in, it keeps eating electricity until the flow is stopped. The good news is most extension cords have a button that you can easily switch on or off. This is the most simple way. However, if it doesn’t have the switch you can always just unplug them from the wall. This is good because most of the time we have a bunch of stuff plugged in at once resulting in more electricity being eaten. Cut that flow off and save your money!

2. Unplug Everything!

Except for your fridge. You don’t want to do that. I thought I would add this in here because it doesn’t just apply to extension cords. Everything eats electric when plugged in. Don’t believe me? Is your TV off? If it is, look at it. See that red light? That’s the standby light. That light is on to tell you that the TV is off. Pretty ridiculous right? Your TV eats electricity when it’s off just to tell you that it’s off. LAME!

The 9 Fruit Of The Spirit

“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”

-Galatians 5:22-23

Do you want to come up higher with God and experience numerous blessings? Do you want to impact the world around you and become a walking sermon? A great way to start is by growing in understanding of the fruit of the Spirit. I’m going to break them down to you and hopefully answer any question you may have about them.

Imagine traveling through a nature wonderland: orange trees, apple trees, peach trees, strawberry bushes, honeysuckles- anything you can imagine. The aroma would be amazing! Where would you begin? I know I love me some fresh peaches. Mmmm! But then imagine one scraggly tree, withering away screaming “Help me!” Among all the other trees, this one sticks out like a sore thumb. You walk over to it, concerned. It doesn’t make sense why this tree is the only one in a dead state because all the ones around it have abundant life. After analyzing it, you realize you don’t even know what kind of tree this is. There’s no leaves or fruit on it.

The bible describes the righteous as ‘a tree of life’. But in Matthew chapter 7, it’s clear that all people are compared to trees, whether good or bad. Jesus told the disciples that ‘by their fruits you will know them (v. 20).’ We don’t want to look like the tree in the description above. We want to be full of goodness that make people flock to us. People should speak well of you and your character. I understand that these things take time; just like a giant thick oak tree in your front lawn. The good news is that great, enormous tree once started as a little acorn.

When we become born again, everything that God is enters our spirit in seed form. As we water them with the water of the Word, our fruits begin to sprout. People start to notice there’s something different about you. In this post, we’ll explore each fruit of the Spirit to gain a deeper understanding of them and their meaning. Read more
