Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control Coloring Page
Description: Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control Coloring Page
Bible Text: Galatians 5:22-23
Bible Lesson: This is the last of 9 printable coloring pages that highlight one of the fruits of the Spirit according to Paul in Galatians. Each fruit of the Spirit is represented by an actual fruit in order to help children learn all of the fruits of the Spirit. (The fruits have been chosen totally randomly.) This one is about self-control and is represented by an apple.
Self-control is the capacity to manage our own emotions and actions. There are many selfish and sinful desires living within each of us. Self-control is the ability to master those desires and live in ways that are honorable and pleasing to God. The Spirit helps us develop self-control by revealing our sinful desires and reminding us of God’s constant love. As children color this page, talk to them about controlling the desires they sometimes have that are not pleasing to God.
