This week, kids learned in Luke 13:1-9 that Jesus expects us to grow fruit like a fruit tree. They learned that the first step in bearing fruit is for us to repent and turn to Jesus. They learned how Jesus told a story about a fruit tree to help people understand why bearing fruit is important to Him. In this story, a fruit tree didn’t bear any fruit for three years and the gardener said to cut it down, but the man who planted the tree asked to spend one more year caring for the tree. Kids learned that even though Jesus expects us to grow, that He always gives us second chances. Bible Memory Verse: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’ ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’ ” Luke 13:6-9
