Read Luke 3:7-9 as a family (we like The Message version).
People were coming to John the Baptist to be baptized because they thought it was the popular thing to do. But John the Baptist reminds them that being baptized in water means nothing if your life isn’t changed. John the Baptist tells them that if their life is changed they should be bearing fruit- the fruit of the spirit. As a family, talk about how our actions and words should display the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control).
