Motion :: Week of February 17

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

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met. But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it. By treating others the way we want to be treated, we live out the way Jesus taught us to live.

This weekend we learned that we can be kind to people who are overlooked.

Rewind | The Least of These from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

In Matthew 25:35-40, Jesus teaches on kindness. For one reason or another, people are overlooked every day—no one even notices them, much less shows kindness to them. But Jesus says that when we show kindness to one of the least of these, it’s as if we’re showing kindness to Him.Everyone deserves to be treated like they’re valuable, no matter who they are. When wes tart to see people who have needs we can work to show kindness and meet those needs.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • Have you ever received unexpected kindness?
  • Why do you think God wants to show kindness to those who are overlooked?
  • What can you do to be more aware of the needs of others?

Bible Story: Ruth and Boaz | Ruth 1 and 2

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met. But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it.

This weekend we learned that we can be kind to our family and friends.

Rewind | Ruth and Boaz from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

In Ruth 1 and 2, Ruth has the opportunity to return home to her family. Instead, she chooses to show kindness to her mother-in-law, Naomi, and stay with her. Ruth’s kindness doesn’t go unnoticed. Boaz notices how Ruth is caring for her mother-in-law. He goes above and beyond to care for Ruth and completely changed her life. When it comes to our family and friends, we often find ourselves taking them for granted. We can show kindness to those we care about most – our family and friends.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • When is it hard to be kind?

Bible Story: Kindness Principle | Titus 3:4-7

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone.

In Titus 3:4-7, Paul talked about God’s amazing kindness towards us. God poured out His kindness when He sent Jesus to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. We can have life forever because of God’s kindness and love, and we need to be kind to others because God is kind to us. 

At dinner this week, ask:

  • What does kindness look like?
  • What are some ways you can choose kindness this week at home? at school?

Motion :: Week of January 27

COMMITMENT: Making a plan and putting it into practice.
Series Memory Verse: “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
Main Point: Practice living for God.
Bible Story: The Widow’s Offering | Mark 12:41-44

January is often a time when we think about new year’s resolutions and what we need to adjust to make the new year, our best year ever. But goals are nothing without a strategy and a way to reach them. The same is true for practicing our faith.

Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply cramming information about the Bible into a our brains. The knowledge in our heads means nothing if we don’t experience what that knowledge can do in their heart. To experience faith, we need to practice it and that takes commitment. We can make a plan and stick to it by committing to practicing faith by reading God’s Word, praying to Him consistently, talking about Him with friends, and living out our faith every day.

This weekend we remembered that we should practice living for God.

Work It Out | The Widow’s Offering from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

Practice living for God. Most of us love singing and worshipping God. But worship isn’t just something we do when we sing at church; worship is really how we honor God with our whole lives—through how we love others and serve them, how we give of our time and talents, how we obey and praise God, even how we rest. Practice LIVING for God and discover that worship isn’t just singing loud, it’s living loud.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • How can you practice living for God?
