Fruitage In Our Sense Of Worth

02/01/2013 20:21

The evaluation we make of our worth involves various areas of our living. One such area is the belief in our own value relating to the opinions of those around us. Another factor is how we esteem ourselves regardless of how others view us. Furthermore, there is the estimation of what we are worth according to the internal values that we cherish. The above components will influence the achievements that we accomplish, and the goals we desire.

The worth we feel for ourselves relates to the goodness that lives within the soul, or the lack of those noble qualities. Within us is a supreme presence that supplies our feelings of esteem with goodness. That includes a respect for life, and blossoms of spiritual fruitage in what we hope to achieve. When we open ourselves to that internal divinity, we discover optimism for who we are, as we are. A positive assessment of the value of our achievements will flow through that divine inner presence. In contrast, if we close out the noble qualities from our estimation of self-worth, there will be negative consequences for self and others.

When the softness of the spiritual fruit thrives from within us, we feel good about who we are in every situation. We can esteem ourselves as a peacemaker when we value our worth through the spirit of peace, gentleness, and meekness. There is inner praise for us as a person of compassion when our self-estimation includes the qualities of love, goodwill, and kindness. There can be a smile within us as a positive influence when the spirit of faith, joy, and goodness lives within our esteem of self. We can feel worthy in our consistency to do well when we estimate our value through patience, self-control, and perseverance. The fruit of the spirit adds internal reassurance to the divine value of our worth.  

HEALTH
What we feel about the value of our worth is evident through how we treat the health of our body. The “cheerleading” of those around us might influence us to indulge in a variety of unhealthy behaviors. We want to feel esteem from others, so we will go to the point of destroying our own body to gain approval. That involves indulging in hazardous drinks, smokes, and a reckless disregard for various infections. Then again, there is the inner estimation of the values of our health, regardless of the misguided applause given to us. We know from within ourselves that our body is worth more to us then to ruin it. We should desire to feel our value on good health through the spiritual fruit. Instead of winning praise through unhealthy endeavors, we prefer to feel our value as a fruitful person.

SAFETY
What we feel for the value of our worth is visible through how safe we desire to keep ourselves. We all know how applause and praise from external sources encourage us to participate into hazardous, dangerous, and life-threatening activity. These activities are similar to the behaviors in the “Jackass" movies, or a dare to walk on “thin ice. “ However, it is the inner esteem of our own worth that guides us away from behaviors that threaten our well-being. Self-esteem full of spiritual fruit will lead us into a safe environment. That is where we feel esteem in the safety of love, comfort of peace, faith in the surrounding goodness, and perseverance in that security.

SOCIAL
What we feel about the value of our worth is visible through our social life. Some of us follow the applause and opinions of others to determine our place of belonging. That might put us among people who are degrading to us, and degenerates our esteem. However, self-esteem within us guides into mutually beneficial relationships. That is regardless of external influences. When the spiritual fruit intertwines with our ego, we feel a loving value for our own worth. We want all social interactions to edify and build the esteem of one another through the spirit of goodness.

EXPRESSION
What we feel for the value of our worth is visible through how we express ourselves in appearance, words, and deeds. Sometimes we might express ourselves according to the encouragement of others because we desire their praise. In doing that, we might say and do things that misrepresent who we are, and later devastates our sense of worth to others. With that said, some people rely on their inner sense of self-esteem to guide their self-expression. That is separate from what others say about us, or do to us. That sense of worth within our words and deeds comes through the spiritual fruit. From within us, we feel esteem by expressing ourselves through the spirit of peace, love, faith, and perseverance in goodness.

Some people feel their worth as a peacemaker, being compassionate, conveying optimism, and through persistence in doing well. These people are not pessimistic about their disappointing status in life, nor are they angry concerning their frustrated destiny. They agree that there is a special presence within each person. That involves the feeling that worth is more than praise through worldly achievements. Those people accept themselves through the spiritual fruit, which comforts the esteem during humiliating experiences, and bring meekness for the period of exaltation.

Reservoirs of people exist who sense their worth through the divinity within the soul. The attitudes that flow from them place supreme value in the qualities of spiritual fruitage within self-esteem. Those feelings transfer through people who realize they have more value in life then to engage in detrimental activity. They learn to assess their worth through the qualities of love, peace, faith, and perseverance. These people begin to open their egos to allow the divine fruit to enter their estimation of their worth. Their intent is to have a place of belonging among people who convey love and mutual respect for one another.

The ones who host the supreme qualities of the inward deity are those making decisions to avoid self-destructive ways, and to relate fruitfully to others. That involves a cycle of hosting the divine fruit within our esteem, and letting those qualities flow through our egos. This cycle continues to live within our sense of worth through the soft, moist tenderness of the soul. There we feel a supreme value for the spirit of love and life.

We can assess that our worth relates to our attitude about the inward divinity, the source of spiritual fruitage. The diagnosis is that we should feel esteem as a peacemaker, a person of compassion, someone who conveys optimism, and in our persistence to do well. We plan to assess our worth through the softness and moistness of our inner being where tenderness lives. The implementation of that plan begins by esteeming others with goodwill, and praising the goodness in accomplishments. Evaluating that plan is according to the worth we feel through the fruit of the spirit. We should feel inner praise within our self-esteem for speaking words and doing deeds of goodness. As love, goodwill, and kindness, blossom in our ego then we know the inward divinity is alive within the soul.
