Daily Bible Reading for Monday, January 22nd:



2 Peter 1:3-11 – Qualities That Make Us Fruitful

fruitjuice

Today’s daily reading list included 2 Peter 1:1-11. This might be considered a companion piece to the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 as it describes the action needed to make our faith fruitful.

Peter’s list:
Faith
Virtue
Knowledge
Self-Control
Steadfastness
Godliness
Brotherly Affection
Love
Paul’s list
Love
Peace
Patience
Kindness
Goodness
Faithfulness
Gentleness
Self-Control

 

Whether the list begins or ends with love doesn’t matter – We see an unbreakable chain where we can’t have one attribute without the rest. Our faith is a contract to supply each of these richly.
