Once our children are saved, the long process of sanctification begins, when God begins moving them toward spiritual maturity and holiness.
Knowing the areas in which the Lord is growing them is a good thing for our kids. We always like to begin with the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23. (Aren’t those great verses?) I’ve put together a set of 144 Bible memory verse cards for you that address each of the nine fruit the Holy Spirit grows in us when we follow Jesus.
Bible Verses about Fruit of the Spirit for Kids
Children love to learn, and childhood and young adulthood are the perfect time for memorization–their brains are primed for it.
You can use your Thinking Kids Press Bible memory card sets in a few ways:
- Work through each card with your child until they commit the verses to memory.
- Keep the cards in a box on your dining table. Read and discuss one each meal.
- During your family prayer time, pray through the verses a few at a time.
- Use the cards to discuss biblical fruit during teachable moments.
- Have your child copy the verse from one card each day.
- Paste them to the bathroom mirror or frame them and make a collage.
Bible Memory Verse Card Set Divider
Your family can decorate and use a Bible memory card box just like we did in the Family Prayer Box Project.
There are a number of Bible memory card sets available in the store at ThinkingKidsPress.com. You’ll find a Bible memory verse card divider included in this set so that you can keep your sets separated, along with a copyright card.
Fruit of the Spirit for Kids
The Bible Verses about Fruit of the Spirit for Kids set is based on 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.
You will find 16 cards on each fruit of the Spirit.
One of the things we teach our children is that the fruit of the Spirit grow in our lives when we are indwelled with the Holy Spirit, when we have repented of our sins and we follow Christ.
Bible Verse Memory Cards
Some of the Bible memory verses are longer passages that are split between two cards, and some are short and sweet. Some verses don’t actually name the fruit, but they do give a verse that really personifies the character trait.
These cards are put together to aid you in your family discipleship. Be creative about how you use them in your family as you teach your kids the word of God.

Help Your Kids Learn and Love the Bible
Looking for a family discipleship book that will give you a crash course in leading your kids through God’s Word? I’ve got you covered.
You want your kids to learn and love the Bible.
You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
