(To be translated into Swahili)

This 12 week Super Fruit curriculum expands on the teaching on the Fruit of the Spirit, covering all 9 fruits, to be translated into Swahili.

Fruit of the Spirit:
Love:
We are to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, soul and mind. This will enable us to show love by doing things for others and being nice to family, friends and pets. God says to love your enemies. That’s hard to do but God expects that!

Joy: There is a difference between joy and happiness. Happiness is based upon “happenings,” meaning if good things happen, you’re happy, but if bad things happen we are unhappy. Not so with joy

Peace is being content with what God has given us. Be happy with what you have.

Longsuffering is patients, not whining or complaining. Remember, patience with your brothers or sisters, no matter how hard that is.

Kindness is giving and helpful. Saying something nice to someone that you see is feeling down?

Goodness means caring and understanding. Do a little something extra to help out at home.

Faithfulness means to be true to God. You all know right from wrong. You all know what God expects. You all know what He says not to do.

Gentleness is being tender and calm. Again, being kind to your family, friends and your pets.

Self-control is managing your wants and emotions. Oh, this is a hard one! Don’t do things that you know you shouldn’t be doing. If you have to hide it or lie about it, don’t do it. Be careful how you act, what you say. Be careful of the friends you pick.

Each Fruit of the Sprit session allows us to introduce the child to a Super Fruit.
