I’m excited about a new activity, perfect when fall colors are painting the trees. We prepared this in the summer so it has green leaves, but as I was working with it I realized how beautiful it would be in fall colors. The children will do the coloring.
As you will see when you go to the page, A Tree of Love, this is an activity to emphasize what the Apostle Paul prayed for, that the church in Ephesus would be grounded and rooted in love.
I use a tree with the fruit of the Spirit and other characteristics of Christian living to illustrate this. A tree grows tall and strong when it has a deep root system.
As Christians we need to be deeply rooted in God and his love. This tree will help the children to visualize and understand it. Not only children, but for anybody at any age it would be good to have this printed and put up on a wall where is can be seen daily.
Rooted and grounded in love… repeat that over and over. Ask the Lord to help you grow deeper and stronger roots in his love from day to day.
Check out two more stories for children on our story pages. One of them is about my son-in-law and what happened when he forgot his Bible on top of the van and traveled from Tulsa to Fort Gibson on a rainy day. His Bible survived! Here it is!
