Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Goodness may not always be the easy choice but it’s always the right choice.

Here are a few passages to read together: Galatians 6:9-10, Ephesians 4:32

What does the Bible tell us about doing good? Does the Bible suggest we should only do it when we’re in the right mood or when it suits us?

Who is our best example in how we should act?

This last link is an old kid’s song about goodness.

Wait a Minute! What’s Patience?

“Anyone who is patient has great understanding.
But anyone who gets angry quickly shows how foolish he is.” Proverbs 14:29

What is Patience? Glad you asked! Here’s a little video to help you out!

It’s not always easy to wait, is it? But God helps us grow when we learn to have patience with one another and when we wait for him to work in our lives. Watch this video that tells the story of Abraham and Sarah. They had a long wait and had to learn how to have patience and trust in God. Then check out the questions at the bottom.

Let’s Seek Peace!

“Turn from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it.” 1 Peter 3:11

Dig Deeper

As we continue our series on the Fruit of the Spirit  we know that God wants to grow good things in us to show that he’s living in our hearts and to share with others. When we have God’s peace in our hearts people will be able to see that peace even when things get stormy around us.

I Grow Fruit?

Did you know God wants to grow good fruit in your life? Not the kind of fruit you can eat, but the kind of fruit that shows others that God is living in your heart and he’s growing you to be more like Jesus every day.  As we set out in this new series on the Fruit of the Spirit we have two memory verses to learn one for the youngest group (age 3) and one for everyone else. See if you can commit them to memory!

Three year olds:
My heart is like a tree
Where God grows fruit in me
Not apples, pears, or kiwi
But love, and joy, and peace

Everyone else:
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

And check out this great song that can help you memorize all the fruits of the spirit!

Today’s story reminds us that sometimes bad things happen (even when we are following God) but God can do the impossible, He is always with us and He has a plan for us. I hope your family enjoys this week’s lesson.

How to Pray – The Persistent Widow

So here’s the thing. We already did a week called “How to Pray” in KV. Well, this is part two, because, really, how can we ever know everything there is to know about prayer? In Luke 18:1-8 we read the story of a woman who never gave up. The judge turned her away but she came back, and came back and… you guessed it! came back until he heard her plea and helped her.

Dig Deeper Lesson

Jesus told us the story of the persistent widow as a lesson to teach us how we should pray. Do you keep praying like the woman in the story or do you give up before God has a chance to answer your prayers? Check out the dig deeper lesson for this week and maybe even print up the prayer journal page!

Last time we did this lesson we learned a prayer that Jesus taught us – The Lord’s Prayer.  Here it is again, (from the Jesus Storybook Bible) just ’cause it’s important and maybe you want to use it to help you pray.

Hello Daddy! We want to know you. And be close to you. Please show us how. Make everything in the world right again. And in our hearts, too. Do what is best – just like you do in heaven, and please do it down here, too. Please give us everything we need today. Forgive us for doing wrong, for hurting you. Forgive us just as we forgive other people when they hurt us. Rescue us! We need you. We don’t want to keep running away and hiding from you. Keep us safe from our enemies. You’re strong, God. You can do whatever you want. You are in charge. Now and forever and for always! We think you’re great! Amen! Yes we do!
