Romans 14:17-18 NKJV for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.
Galatians 5:23 NKJV
…gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Everybody wants to be liked and accepted. People invest in books and seminars on how to get people to like them. One easy, and cheap, way to get people to do so is to bear the fruits of the Spirit like righteousness, joy, and peaceful at all times.
