This beautiful winter morning in the Kid Cave Forest was suppose to be full of fun! The Critters acted with bad attitudes and Emmi Squirrel was hurt in the scuffle! Everyone is sad for Emmi. They are sorry they did not use the New Attitudes they have because they belong to God. They could have chosen not to get mad, or ugly. They would still be having fun if they would have acted in kindness and love. They needed the Holy Spirit to be their Hiking Partner!
Do you ever feel grouchy, lazy, hateful, mean, or just want to act ugly? Those are bad attitudes. God wants you to change those bad feelings into better ones. Jesus has the good ones and they are described as, "Fruits of His Spirit" in the Bible. You might have learned to ask yourself, "What Would Jesus Do?" Gramma Cherbear would like you to also ask, "How Would Jesus Act?"
"But the fruit
the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being
patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having
control of oneself." Galations 5:22.
When tempted to act
badly, we can let the Holy Spirit be our Hiking Partner and remember
that God wants us to act like Jesus. He will be able to bless
us if we do.
