"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23
What you need: Flour tortillas, yogurt (strawberry or red raspberry), shredded coconut-sweetened, various fruit such as sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries, etc.
What you do: Spread the yogurt onto the tortillas. Sprinkle the shredded coconut over the yogurt. Arrange the fruit on top. Slice your Fruit of the Spirit Pizza into nine sections (to represent the nine aspects of the Fruit of the Spirit). Eat and enjoy!
Bible point: The Bible says, "Love your neighbor as yourself." The Spirit of God makes it possible for us to show love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control to those we meet each day. Notice that the Bible says, "FRUIT," not "fruits" of the Spirit. The "Fruit of the Spirit" has many parts, but it is one work of the Spirit. In essence, it is a description of Jesus' character. Before we can have Jesus' FRUIT, his character, displayed in our lives, we must have him living in us. God's promise to us is this, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved" Romans 10:13. Ask Jesus to save you and then change you to become more and more like him, and he will do it! (See also Romans 8:9-10.)
Allow this sweet and flavorful dessert to remind you to follow Jesus, then you will be able to bring the sweet and flavorful Fruit of the Spirit to your family, friends, and coworkers each day!
This is just one of the activities you'll find in, The Fruit of the Spirit Bible lessons -- for K-5th grade.
