Back to School Devotion on Fruit of the Spirit: An Interactive Lesson

Gold heart

Say: You’ll be tempted to act in ways that aren’t pleasing to God. But keep your heart pure like a shiny gold heart.


Say: School can be a tough place, and kids aren’t always kind. Be like Jesus and be kind to everyone at school — even the bullies!

Funny glasses

Say: As you learn new things, you need God’s eyes to know the things that are true and the things that aren’t true.

If you have all these things in your backpack, I know you’ll have a great school year. 

Close with a prayer of blessing for children in the upcoming school year.
