“…the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.” (Galatians 5:22)
Our God gives the best gifts indeed! James 1:17 states, “Every good and perfect gift is from above…” God’s Word teaches us that He is the reason for all the GOOD things we have in our lives. God loves us so much and wants to give us all our hearts desire! He gives us our families, our homes and above all gives us His gift of peace and a sense of belonging.
Lesson 7– God blesses us with many tangible gifts like family members, warm beds and food on our tables. Help your child understand that He also gives gifts we cannot see; the love in our hearts, the peace we feel because we are loved by Him and our families, the joy that His blessings bring and the happiness we have inside of us! Ask your child to thank God as you pray with them each night for His gifts seen and unseen! Remind your children that His gifts don’t only come at Christmas time, they last forever! All we have to do is love Him with all our hearts. The more we seek Him the more He reveals Himself to us! How do we seek Him? Through prayer, giving thanks and learning God’s Word!
