fruit of the spirit
our bible lesson today is on the fruit of the spirit Galatians 5:22-26, this is a favorite bible verse of mine- though there aren't many that aren't-. The kids are copying the verse into their copy books, and will be making spiritual fruits for our Easter tree.-some pears,apples, bananas, grape,lemons etc-.
WE also discussed how we need to work on these fruits everyday to help them grow- we are the vine he is the branches-. We discussed which we would like to work on and -Madeline's is peace-not worrying so much cause Jesus is with us all the time- Grace;s is gentleness- with the cat and her brothers:-)- Mine is self-control- I lose my temper more then I would like to-.
None of us are perfect and we need to prune those branches and bad fruits often, and grow strong and good as long as we keep growing and praying the perfect gardener will keep us pruned and he will help us grow strong .
