This coloring book attempts to illustrated the bible teaching for kids using contemporary scenes related to Galatians 5:22-23.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

coloring page about lovePrint out this Coloring Page about Love for your kids. It shows two boys on the playground with arms around the shoulders. This highlights the spiritual fruit of love and good relationships. As children mature spiritually, they are more able to show the character of Jesus in their relationships. Like all these sheets, you have our permission to copy them for school, home, or church. Our writers have created a Love Bible lesson that can be used with this sheet.

This joy coloring page shows a young family rejoicing together while the mother holds a new baby. This illustration will help kids to understand the meaning of joy and look forward to the greatest joy when we experience the presence of Christ in Heaven. As kids grow spiritually, they can better appreciate the real joys in life. PDF and jpeg image downloads available. You might also enjoy the Joy Bible lesson that goes with this illustration.

The next in this series is this peace coloring page. It shows a young girl watching a thunderstorm outside her window. This highlights the real impact that God’s Peace can have in practical situations. As kids grow spiritually, they have new courage to face the scary times in life. Children will better understand how the Bible relates to their life. Don’t miss our peace Bible lesson that corresponds with this printable.

Patience coloring pageThis patience coloring page shows two sisters playing with blocks. The older sister is demonstrating patience in allowing the younger sibling to play along, even if she breaks down the structures. This is a quality we can identify and encourage in children as they progress in spiritual maturity. This picture would be a helpful discussion starter for kids about the topic of patience. Kara Jenkins has written a simple patience Bible lesson to accompany his sheet.

Coloring pages about kindnessFor the kindness coloring pages, Many decided to create two different options. One picture has a boy sharing a slice of cake. The other shows a boy being kind to a younger girl (maybe sister) who has hurt her leg. In both illustrations you can see that kindness means thinking of other people’s needs and wants before your own. For children, this is an excellent sign of spiritual growth in their lives. They begin to think of the interests of others. Bible lesson plan about kindness coming soon.

Goodness coloring pageHere is our goodness coloring page. The goal in this illustration is to show a real situation where a child could demonstrate the spiritual quality of goodness. This picture has a boy giving away his ice cream to comfort another child who has dropped their own. This kind of sympathy and good action is evidence of spiritual growth in the life of a young person. Use this page to start conversations about other ways to show goodness. Here is the Goodness Bible lesson that goes with the sheet.

Faithfulness coloring pageThis faithfulness coloring page depicts a concept that can be difficult for kids to understand. As we grow spiritually we take on more of the character of Jesus. In this illustration, a girl is sharing her material blessings (toys) with another child who does not have much. This demonstrates she is has integrity with her possessions, avoiding a greedy attitude. The child is faithful to use what God has given her in ways that bring honor to God. We also have a Faithfulness Bible lesson that goes with this sheet.

Gentleness coloring pageThe gentleness coloring page shows a young girl carefully holding a baby bird. This image would be a great conversation piece about what it means to be gentle in our actions, words, and attitudes. You could share stories about Jesus when he showed gentleness to others. This is a personality trait that God builds into our lives through the Spirit as we grow in maturing. Being gentle is a quality we all would love to see grow in the hearts of children. You may also like our free Bible lesson on Gentleness to accompany this coloring sheet.

free self-control coloring pageThis self-control coloring page illustrates in a contemporary setting what it means for a child to demonstrate self-control. The scene is a store with children shopping alongside their parents. One child is throwing a fit while the other shows restraint. This type of self-control is evidence of God’s grace and spiritual growth in their lives. We also have uploaded a lesson plan about self-control.

    Thank you so much for this precious, wonderful ministry. It is very helpful to me as a pastor in a nursing home ministry and a grandmother and great-grandmother in my home church. I am having a fruit of the spirit party for my children…I have 10 piggy banks with $1.00 in each of them. For every fruit of the spirit the children recite during the party, they get 5 cents for their bank…if they recite all 9, they get another dollar. They will enjoy these coloring pages and so am I…God bless you and your family. Sis. Vena
