GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE
FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS
SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY.
God created us in His image, and He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us the way to live. He also knew we would need help; that’s why He sent us the Holy Spirit. With the power of the Spirit, we can produce fruit that points others to Jesus. Every month, kids discover something about God’s character and how they can reflect or respond to that character because they are created in God’s image. We call those Life Apps. And this summer we’re discovering how several of these Life Apps show up specifically in what the Apostle Paul calls the fruit of the Spirit.

SAY THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Show God’s goodness to others.
DO THIS TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION:
Think of something you could do for your child in the morning that would show them a little extra kindness—make a special breakfast, give a special treat in their lunch, or maybe complete one of their chores. They may or may not notice, but be sure to tell them, “Find a way to show someone God’s goodness today!”
“God began a good work in you. And I am sure that he will carry it on until it is completed. That will be on the day Christ Jesus returns.”
Philippians 1:6, NIrV
