On the other hand, the Holy Bible describes "the works of the flesh", the extreme opposite of the Holy Spirit. (See Galatians 5:19-22.) The qualities of the "flesh" amount to sin, and evil. These constitute a path to spiritual destruction. The manifestations of sin and evil can be seen in the many crimes and horrors which occur in the world.
Therefore, we have an opportunity today and everyday of our lives, to incorporate the "Spirit" into our lives. We can do this in our treatment of each other, our spouses, family members, friends, co-workers, and business partners. We must try to remember to treat them with kindness and gentleness, even when they anger us. With our co-workers, who may irritate us at times, we can have self-control and pray for peace. Not easy at all, I know. Yet, we should do it.
Let’s open our hearts so the Holy Spirit can guide us, today and always, as we demonstrate our thankfulness to God.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
