“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”
For the past few months we have been working our way through the fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5. It has been fun, each week I have had an object/science lesson to go along with it. Baking soda and vinegar went over well to show joy bubbling over. There are a couple boys who can go back to the beginning and name every one of the evidences of God working in us, and give examples! That is very exciting, to know God’s Word is reaching in to them.
I missed last week with them but we had left off after kindness. Before we got to our snack I told the older ones they were to put kindness in action and serve the little ones. It also helped them to see that when we work together, it takes less effort and time. It worked so well I decided that’s how we would do it from now on. I am very proud to see these young people who in the beginning pushed and shoved to get theirs first now serving others and being patient. Time and persistance baby! (Not always easy but oh so rewarding!)
