A couple of weeks ago we had an issue with an inappropriate response from one child to another. A moment to make a mother proud. Or not. I decided right then and there we needed to start studying the Fruits of the Spirit.
I began looking for activities and opened our Bible to Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
First we made fruit baskets with each of the labeled fruits. Today we went a step further and put fruit right on the trees.
We drew trees with markers on some watercolor paper I had, then added each of the fruits of the Spirit and finally glued on buttons.
We also listened to songs about the fruit while we worked. And I am praying for fruit…
