Verse link: Ephesians 5:2 – Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us…
The Point: God’s love puts others first.
Bible story: The sacrifice of Jesus
During the week ask your child if they can remember The Point or the Verse form Sunday’s lesson.
Ask these questions:
- Whose example of love should we follow?
- Do you know what sacrifice means?
- When is it difficult to put others first?
Make a list of good things/ways to serve others and put them in a hat. Each family members pulls out one thig and for the rest of the day (or the following day) they must do that thing. For example – never go first; greet everyone with a happy hello; offer to help with a shore you don’t usually do/like, etc.
Song of the week: My God, My Father – KidSpring Children’s Ministry
God, thank You for giving us Jesus. Thank you for the sacrifice he made to show us your love. Please help us to follow his example. [Add thanks and prayer requests for others.]
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
