We are happy to offer a set of original printables (available at our store) that can be used to encourage children to practice the fruits of the Spirit as they fill their tree with “good fruit” everyday. This is a great alternative to a typical behavior chart as it focuses on inner, godly character and not just outward behavior.
Print out one for every family member and work on it together!
This three-page printable includes:
Page 1 – A coloring page with an empty tree and Galatians 5:22-23.
Page 2 – A set of the 9 Fruits of the Spirit (that can also be colored) and instructions on how to use the set.
Page 3 – A colorful Fruit of the Spirit description page with a definition, Bible passage and child-friendly examples for each of the different fruits of the Spirit.
Luke 6:43-45 says, “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
This printable will help your children see that when we have lives rooted in Jesus and watered by His word and the fellowship of believers it will be obvious to others by what we say and do. Having “good” behavior is not our ultimate goal – having a heart that loves Jesus is. And when we put Jesus first, good deeds will follow.
