The Fruits of the Spirit

"You have been a refuge for the poor,
a refuge for the needy in his distress,
a shelter from the stormand a shade from the heat..."
Isaiah 25:4

Fruits of the Spirit

Goodness & Kindness - Providing a Shelter

Where is your shelter? You would probably say your home is your shelter. Your parents or guardians provide you with a roof over your head and food to eat. There are children in our world who are not safe and have no shelter. God wants you to be good and kind to everyone. He will fill your heart with joy as you use His gifts of goodness and kindness to help those who are in need.

God shows us the needs of others everyday. He wants us to help His children know they are safe in His care. We can speak a kind word or do a good deed. We can also pray for the needs of others. God teaches us how to grow up with goodness and kindness in your heart. Jesus fed the hungry and made them well. Goodness and kindness are fruits of His Spirit. Thank God when someone treats you with a good and kind heart. Remember where your help comes from.

Some forest creatures are homeless because of a the forest fire. They are on their way to the Kid Cave where they will be happy to see how much the Critters want to help them. They will eat and find new homes near the Kid Cave where they will have shelter and food until they can return to their homes. The Critters can see God's peace in their friends as they treat them with goodness and kindness.

God cares for us. It is because of His goodness and kindness we are safe and well. When we are in trouble we need to look to God first. It is God who sends our help. We can do as Jesus would do if we use our gifts of goodness and kindness to help others. When God gives us a way to help others that is what we must do. We help others because we love God. The blessings are ours because we have pleased God.
