Hey Kids and Families!
We hope this finds you healthy and having had a great week together! We are including our LAST two FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT in this email: GENTLENESS and SELF CONTROL. Galatians 5 has been such a blessing to us in these past few weeks as we have all learned more about LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, and now GENTLENESS and SELF CONTROL. Our prayer is that you have learned how to implement these into your life in new ways and have also learned how to teach them/model them to your children. It’s tough, but WE CAN DO IT!! Please remember Psalm 23 as you talk to your children about gentleness and also remember the story of David and Saul as you teach your kids about self control.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. Psalm 23: 1-3a
King Saul wanted to kill David because he was jealous of him. Suddenly David had the perfect chance to defend himself against Saul and kill him instead but he chose not to. David knew that God had a plan, and he trusted God, even though he could have acted to protect himself and kill his enemy! David showed self-control because he knew God’s plan needed to be in God’s timing. 1 Samuel 24
We have also attached a PDF with printables and ideas for more Fruit of the Spirit learning with kids!
**Montgomery families also please remember to complete the parent survey that we sent out earlier this week. We are trying to determine the best course of action in opening up our children’s programming again and would really love to hear your thoughts. You can find the survey here:
We are praying for you and love you so MUCH!
