2 Peter 1:5-9
v. 8

"For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." NIV

"For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." KJV

What are these qualities we are to possess and keep striving to increase so that we will be fruitful and not dead weight for the kingdom of God? Along with our faith, these qualities are: goodness; knowledge; self-control; perseverance; godliness; brotherly kindness; and love. If we examine ourselves in truth, will we find these things active and increasing in our lives?

Heavenly Father, search our hearts and lives and reveal to us if we have these qualities that we need to be productive children of God. We thank you and praise for helping us be more like you, in Jesus' name, Amen.
