Motion :: Week of March 30

God is one of a kind. He has no beginning and no end. Everything He has created is unique and one-of-a-kind, including people created in His image.

Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems. Jesus lived this out in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

We finished our series by taking a look at Matthew 22:34-40 to discover the greatest commandment. With the greatest commandment, Jesus clarified what it meant to follow God. Instead of following hundreds of commands, Jesus said we are to love God and love others as we love ourselves. When we put this into practice, it helps us prioritize love in all of our relationships.

God made me to love others. We’re not meant to do life on our own. God made us for relationships, but for those relationships to thrive, love must be our goal.

Work together to brainstorm some ways you can use your unique talents to show love to others in your family and community this week.

We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

This week, we took a look at 1 Samuel 16 to learn about the time God used Samuel to anoint David as the next king of Israel. As the youngest of Jesse’s sons, David was the least likely to be crowned king. God helped Samuel discover that the true worth is not what we see on the outside but who we are on the inside.

God wants me to see what really matters. When we learn to see ourselves the way God does, it can change the way we see ourselves and others. God wants us to see others the way He sees them and show everyone they matter.

At bedtime, read 1 Samuel 16:1-13. Pray that God would help you see what truly matters about the people around you.

This week, we took a look at what Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12. Paul wrote to Timothy to remind him to stay faithful to the task God gave him. Although he was young, Timothy was able to lead the church and point people to Jesus.

God made me to make a difference. As we discover more about our individuality, we can begin to realize that God created us for a purpose. God can use our strengths to help others and show them what it means to follow Jesus.

At dinner tonight, share what individual gifts and talents you bring to the family and how it makes your family stronger when you celebrate your differences.

We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

We took a look at  Luke 15:1-17 to learn about Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep. In this parable, Jesus told the story about a shepherd who left 99 sheep behind to search for the one that was lost. Just like the shepherd in the parable, Jesus is our Good Shepherd who rescues us and makes it possible for us to have a relationship with God forever.

God wants to have a relationship with me. When it comes to individuality, it’s important we understand that God created us to have a relationship with Him. Through Jesus’ parable of the Lost Sheep, we hope kids will understand that God loves them so much, He made a way to have a relationship with them forever.

At bedtime, read Luke 15:1-7. Pray that you’ll always remember God loves you and wants to spend time with you.

We started our new series by taking a look at Genesis 1:26-28. When God created people, He did something special. He created them in His image and gave them the job of taking care of creation.

God made me in His image. We want kids to understand that being made in the image of God means we can love, show kindness, be creative, solve problems, and care for others all because we reflect and respond to God’s character.

At dinner tonight, ask: If you could use just one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
