On the Ninth Day of Christmas: 9 Ladies Dancing


The nine dancing ladies represent the nine fruits of the Spirit. 

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galations 5: 22, 23

Simple ways to teach a little one: 

* Get your dancing shoes on today! Play your favorite song of praise and sing to the Lord together!

* Cut out nine pictures of fruit and paste them on a piece of paper.  Label each fruit with one of the fruits of the Spirit.  Hang the paper up by your child’s bed and, when praying for family and friends, ask the child to choose a fruit of the Spirit to pray into each person’s life.  Also, pray that your entire family would be full of the fruit!

* Over sliced apples or banana wheels, explain that God develops these amazing qualities in us when we spend time with Him and listen to His Spirit, who lives inside of everyone who follows Jesus Christ.
