Week 7: GOODNESS
Read Galatians 5:22-23.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
Can you tell me which Fruit of the Spirit we have learned already? (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness)
Today we are going to learn about Goodness.
Has anyone ever told you to “be good?” What does being good look like?
But goodness isn’t simply about being good. True goodness comes straight from the heart. It is being good not because Mommy or Daddy said so, but because your heart wants to do good.
What are ways you can show “goodness” during practices? Games?
Can you show goodness to your coaches? Teammate? Even opponents?
What would it look like if someone was choosing NOT to show goodness? How would that affect other people around them?
Who are some basketball players that you have seen show “goodness” on and off the court?
God is good and when we love Him, we desire to be good without anyone telling us to be good.
Let’s pray for God’s goodness to shine through us:
I want Your goodness to shine through me to others. I want others to see how wonderful You are through my acts of “goodness”. Please help me to choose “goodness” each and every day.
