Affirmation
Say the following affirmation every morning and evening

I am loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled.

The tongue has the power of life and death Proverbs 18:21


Actions to Self
Do something that shows you that you are faithful to God each day. 

This can be using your God-given talents.

As do your faithful action, meditate on "I am faithful to God".
Love your neighbor as you love yourself Matthew 22:39


Actions to Others
Do something that shows a person you meet that you are faithful to God love every day. 

This can be a faithful action like using your God-given talents to serve someone in need. For example if you are gifted in cooking you can prepare a meal for a person without food. If you a  gifted artist, you can make beautiful cards and distribute them to sick people in hospital to brighten their days.

Do your faithful actions without expecting anything in return like the good Samaritan.



Examination
Finish your day by asking yourself, “Was I loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind and faithful today?”

If you were not, make a mental note to do better tomorrow. If you were, make a mental note to continue displaying the fruits of the spirit.
The Proverbs 31 woman does good to her husband all her life.



The Good Samaritan
A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and he was attached by thieves who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him and left him half dead.

A priest passed that way and when he saw the wounded man, he crossed the road and went to other side.  

A Levite also passed by that road and when he looked at him, he also crossed to the other side.

A Samaritan came down that road and when he saw the wounded man, he felt compassion for him. He bound his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them and placed him on his animal. He took him to an inn and took care of him.  

The next morning, before he departed, he took two pence and gave them to the innkeeper and asked him to take care of the wounded man and he would pay him for any extra money he spent when he came back.  (Luke 10:30-35)
