In Christianity, the fruit of the spirit are gifts brought to Christians by the Holy Spirit. The website, Bible-Knowledge.com, lists the gifts, which include love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Acting out scenes that bring to life the fruit of the spirit helps young people realise the value of each fruit in their own lives. Examples of skits depicting the fruit of the spirit include role-playing what love looks like in real life, how faithfulness challenges people and the fortunate consequences of peace. Emphasise that all of the fruits are gifts and should be honoured as such.

Create a skit that portrays the idea of love as the Bible teaches it. Use the apostle Paul's hymn of love in First Corinthians, chapter 13, as a guide. A revealing skit might show a famous televangelist with millions of followers. Show the preacher teaching with compelling words and how his followers build him up. Give a snapshot of his private life. Show him as impatient and inconsiderate of his staff. Along with the lesson that words must be backed by actions, let the skit show that all people are flawed, but no less loved by God.
Use a skit about faithfulness to show how important and challenging that fruit is. Portray the gospel of Luke's scene of the Crucifixion in which the criminal who is crucified alongside Jesus shows his faith in who Jesus really is. Let Jesus' promising words reveal his own faithfulness and the love that is its foundation. Add to the story what the criminal might have experienced after he died and found himself in the promised Paradise.
Perform a skit showing how faithful Christians can be granted the gift of inner peace even in the middle of great turmoil. A skit about peace might show a soldier in war who is confronted every day with chaos and death. Let that soldier find a sanctuary of peace in her soul as she takes time to pray and meditate on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, who is recognised as the Prince of Peace.
