Why Should We Teach the Fruits of the Spirit?
The Bible has a lot to say about love. In fact, the entire Bible is about God’s love for us and our response to that love. When we teach our kids about love, we are teaching them about one of the most important topics in the Bible.
The fruits of the Spirit are listed in Galatians 5:22-23. They are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. As you can see, love is the first fruit of the Spirit. This is because love is the most important attribute that we can have.
When we teach our kids to love others, we are teaching them to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. Jesus was the perfect example of love. He loved us so much that he died for us. When we teach our kids to love others, we are helping them to become more like Jesus.
24 Bible Verses About Love for Kids
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
1 John 4:10
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
1 John 3:18
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
1 John 4:16
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
I Corinthians 13:13
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
1 Peter 4:8
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
1 John 4:12
No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
1 Thessalonians 3:11-13
Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you, and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.
But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
