I’m not sure where their drill sergeant was but they were marching across this parking lot in Ocracoke.
They probably saw a bit of food dropped on the ground and were off to check it out.
I thought of Galatians 5:25 which says, “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” (NIV)
This verse comes right after the list of the fruit of the Spirit.
I suspect that staying in step with the Holy Spirit means that we are both open to what He wants to do in our lives, and cooperate with Him.
If we do so, then I imagine that we will see the fruit of the Spirit in our words, actions and attitudes!
So, keep in step!
