Bearing fruit


The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
                                                                                          – Galatians 5:22-23

Look at the list of the fruit of the Spirit.
Take a few moments to consider each of these attributes.

Which one are you in need of this moment?

Cutting 'fruit'

Take a piece of paper and cut out a leaf (or a piece of fruit!).

Write the fruit of the Spirit on it that you are asking God to produce in you.

Say it aloud as you hang it on the tree.

Look at the tree and the fruit others have posted or will post.  Give thanks to God for these gifts of the Spirit.

Take a moment to bask in God’s presence.

On the tree


God, I long to know you more.
I worship you as Three in One – Father, Son, Spirit.

May my life take root deep in you, and may the leaves and fruit that grow bring shade, healing, and life to all.


In Christ, Amen.
