Why should our society focus more on the fruit of the Spirit?

Who is somebody that uses their freedom to serve somebody else?

I’m sorry. I don’t understand your question in view of the thread topic.
Could you be a little more specific?

Society should focus more on the fruit of the spirit such as love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Those things listed are things that society should value to allow us to look after each other and care for one another.
I was wondering who would be a good example of somebody who shows that

Most of the saints canonized in the last couple hundred years have those qualities.

Any of the Saints. There are living saints if we look for them.

The fruits of the Spirit are the will of God. And yes, we should focus more on those as well as upon the VIRTUES than we stress and fret over sin sin sin. We automatically sin. We must strive to possess the virtues so that we may bear the fruits of the Spirit.

We are on a pilgrim journey. Say we were driving while focused constantly on the ditch (sin) rather than our destination (God’s Kingdom), we would quickly land in the ditch.

I think it best to keep our eyes on the prize - the Kingdom of God.
