It’s based on Matthew 7:17, which reads:
“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.” (Matthew 7:17)
I hope your summer is shaping up to be a very productive one. And I pray that all the fruit you produce will be of the very best quality imaginable!
Ideas for using these coloring pages:
- Help your little ones stay quiet and still in church by letting them color Scripture during the Sunday sermon. (Older kids might prefer taking notes with this printable)
- My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils.)
- I give coloring pages to my younger kids/grandkids during school time and let them color at the table while I work with older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I sometimes assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color. That way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
- I do one of several things with these pages once they’ve finished coloring them. Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair. There’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!
More to Color
This Bearing Good Fruit coloring page is from the first volume in my “Color the Word” series. I designed these richly-detailed, Scripture-based coloring books with grown-ups in mind. But they can be enjoyed by all ages.
For those who enjoy journaling as well as coloring, my devotional journals offer the best of both worlds.
If you like to color, then come back again next week. I post a new coloring page every Sunday. Or you can follow this link to download any of the designs I’ve posted in the past: Free Christian Coloring Pages.
