Our Fruit of the Spirit Lesson...Show a Little Kindness!

Yikes, this week has gotten away from me!  Work has been moving along at a breakneck pace, and my sweet niece and nephew are here for a visit!  We had such a fun morning at soccer and then at the Air Force Base museum!  Look at all of these smiling faces!
Just to catch you up, last week in Children's Church, our Fruit of the Spirit lesson was on KINDNESS.  This seems like such a great and timely lesson--even for adults!!!!  Kindness to others is such a wonderful way to show God's love to the world and is evidence of our obedience to the Holy Spirit!!!
Our Scripture focus came from the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz.  I love this beautiful Old Testament story!  Ruth shows kindness to her mother-in-law by her willingness to stay with her even when she could have gone back home to her own family.  Boaz showed kindness to Naomi and Ruth by leaving extra grain for the ladies to gather in the fields, and the Lord showed kindness to them all!  We used our felt board for storytelling as usual, which is such a good and traditional way to teach and review our Bible lesson each week!
I used my little girls' toy food along with small and large paper strips to demonstrate Boaz's kindness and generosity in the fields.
Like usual Clunky Monkey, our puppet, paid us a visit and demonstrated a little kindness of his own--he brought me a rose. :-)
We colored our kindness coloring page like usual, along with a coloring picture of the story of Ruth that I found online.
Thanks so much for checking in each week to see what we are learning.  Remember, if you would like access to these posters and coloring pages, visit me on TpT or TN at the addresses below.  Both KJV and other translations are available there.  Blessings, Shannon :-)
