The Force of Kindness – Week 3 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to people who are overlooked.
Bible Story: Least of These, Matthew 25:35-40

This week in our The Force of Kindness series, we learned that we need to be kind to those who are overlooked and saw that exemplified in The Clone Wars when clone troopers helped rescue overlooked people on Ryloth. Of course, Jesus set the ultimate example for us while he was on earth as he cared for the most overlooked and unworthy people of his day.

Throughout this series, we’ve been singing a new song called Generation For You, a song all about kindness and serving. Check out the music video below. It shows a group of students who chose to live out this idea of being kind to those who are overlooked when they went and served at a special needs facility.

Talk with your family about those around you who might be overlooked and plan some opportunities you can take to show kindness to them.


The Force of Kindness – Week 2 #Motion

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: There’s always time to be kind.
Bible Story: Jesus and the Children, Mark 10:13-16

In our second week of The Force of Kindness, we saw an episode of Clone Wars where a farmer went out of his way to be kind to the Clone Troopers, and even though he was attacked, he took the time to be kind.

We then read in the Bible how Jesus, who was very busy with his growing ministry, took time to be kind to a group of children who wanted to see him. Jesus was the perfect example of kindness. 

Talk with your family this week about times when you struggle to take the time to be kind. Commit to holding each other accountable to always taking the time to be kind. And come back next week for another episode of The Force of Kindness!

TFOK Main Slide

Series Memory Verse: Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them to do to you.”
Virtue: Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Main Point: Be kind to your family and friends.
Bible Story: Ruth and Naomi, Ruth 1-2

This week we began a brand new series called The Force of Kindness. This is a Hollywood Highlight Reel series for us, meaning we play clips from movies or TV shows and learn lessons from them. This series we will be watching clips from Star Wars: Clone Wars and learning about kindness.

We started off by watching a clip where Anakin was kind to his droid R2-D2. He set a good example for us by being kind to someone who was close to him. Sometimes, we can be kind to others but then mean to those closest to us. Ruth also set a good example for us in the Bible story we read. Even when it would’ve been easier for her to do otherwise, she was kind to her mother-in-law and sister-in-law.

Have a family conversation about how often we are meanest to those we love the most. Ask for forgiveness where necessary and look for solutions to help each other be kind to family and friends. Come back next week for another exciting installation of The Force of Kindness


Star Search – Week 5 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: James 4:17, “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”
Main Point: Stand up this summer.
Bible Story: Jesus in the Garden, Matthew 26:36-46

Today we recapped our Star Search series and got ready to head into summer. See the recap of Star Search here:

Just as Rosie learned to stand up for what was right by the end of the series, we can carry this lesson with us into the summer. When schedules and activities are different, it’s that much more important to keep conviction as a central part of our composition. Talk with your family about opportunities you’ll have this summer to continue to stand up for what’s right. Pray for God’s courage and strength to choose what is right. Come back next week for a brand new series in Motion called The Force of Kindness and if you’re away from church throughout the summer, stay connected through the Elevation app and this site!


Star Search – Week 4 #Motion

033116_eKidz_Motion_SSEA2

Series Memory Verse: James 4:17, “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.”
Main Point: Get in the habit of standing up for what’s right.
Bible Story: Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Daniel 6

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Check out the fourth episode of our Star Search series!

The competition has come and we have a winner – Tyson! Ultimately, however, Rosie realized that she had to choose to stand up for what was right and she returned Tyson’s sword to him. She didn’t win the competition but found a new confidence and sense of conviction.

Throughout this experience, Rosie struggled with standing up for what was right, though her friend Tyson gave her a wise example. He was able to stand for right because he was in the habit of doing so and it’s the same in our lives. We need to make sure our habits are reinforcing right behavior. Talk with your family about how you can get or stay in the habit of standing up for what’s right. Come back next week as we wrap up Star Search and kick off summer!
