Marilyn continues exploring the 'Fruits of the Spirit' with our children. This week we discuss JOY where we discover that the fruit of the spirit can be about joy. The story is about Paul and Barnabas from the Book Of Acts.
Joy lives within us. Question: What happens when we are unhappy? Answer: Joy still lives within us! In fact, the Holy Spirit lives within us! Paul and Barnbas were two people who believed very much in Jesus but they were criticized buy some people for this. Their happiness might have left them during those times, but we learn that their joy never did. In this week's lesson then, Marilyn will as us to consider: What makes us joyful, and what might God rejoice in?
