Smart is Not a Fruit

This is a great article from Ligonier's February 2012 edition of TableTalk Magazine, from R.C. Sproul, Jr. Enjoy!

Smart is not a fruit>>> 

Excerpt: "We will not begin to get better until we embrace this obvious truth: smart is not one of the fruits of the Spirit. Of course we are to love God with all our minds. But we are to love God with all our minds, not merely understand Him. When our knowledge cannot traverse the distance from our heads down to our hearts, we are suffering from spiritual emptiness. We will not begin to get better until we come to embrace this obvious truth: we come into the kingdom not as scholars or students, but as children."
