“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and
self-control.”

Galatians 5:22-23

This creative object lesson helps kids understand the
importance of recognizing and using these gifts.

Supplies: You’ll need Bibles, newsprint, tape,
markers, index cards, pencils, and several concordances.

Before the children arrive, tape the newsprint to the wall
to create a large mural. On the mural draw a tree with roots. Also
draw nine pieces of fruit in the tree, and write one of the fruits
of the spirit on each piece of fruit. At the top of the mural,
write the verse.

Gather the children and say: Today we’re going to learn a
verse about fruit. To do that we’ll think like orchard farmers.
Sometimes orchards produce good crops, and sometimes orchards
produce bad crops. Have the children refer to what you’ve drawn
below ground and above ground to answer the following questions.

• What conditions affect the crop above ground and below
ground?

• If we want our orchard to grow the crops I have written
on the pieces of fruit, what would the conditions need to be like
in our lives?

Say: A crop is the result of the
farmer’s work plus the state of the environment. Let’s do some
investigating about what the Bible says about these fruits and how
to grow a good crop of them.
