Family Pres Week 15, Fruits of the Spirit

Galatians 6:

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

“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.”


Step 1:  You’ll need two trees.  Boys are excellent trees.  Wiggly giggly trees are best.  Be sure to choose a bad fruit tree who is fully confident that he is actually good fruit.  We do not want hurt feelings.  Leanne used towels and clothes pins.

Step 2:  Leanne had cut out bad fruit and good fruit.  Bad fruit included fits, selfish ambition (she explained this), envy, hatred and a few more.  She left out a few too.  You can guess which ones.

Step 3:  Leanne asked the students to clip on good fruit to the good tree and bad fruit to the bad tree.  As each child clipped, the group discussed the fruit and if it was good or bad.
