Motion :: Week of December 8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read Luke 1:26-56 together as a family.

In today’s Bible story, Gabriel visited Mary with a huge announcement. God was about to rescue the world through Jesus, and she had an important role to play. Mary was overwhelmed by God’s love for the world and the part she got to play by fulfilling God’s plan to send a Savior.

God can use anyone to meet others’ needs. Even if you don’t feel like you have what it takes, God can use you to show compassion and meet the needs of the people around you.

Discuss the following questions with your child:

  • God chose Mary to bring Jesus into the world so Jesus could save us. Why might people have been surprised that God chose Mary?
  • What was Jesus willing to do to meet our need?
  • When was the last time you helped meet someone else’s need? What did you do to help them?
  • What is the greatest need at your school? What could you do to help meet that need?

 

MEMORY VERSE ACTIVITY
This month our memory verse is, 
“God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.”

Motion :: Week of December 1

COMPASSION: Caring enough to do something about someone else’s need.
Series Memory Verse:“God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16, (NIV)
Main Point:God did something about our greatest need.
Bible Story: God Loves the World | John 3:16

God’s compassion for the people He created led to the greatest act of love the world has ever seen. God sent His only Son to make us right with Him. We reflect that compassion when we care about others and show them how much God loves them. That’s the mission God has for each of us!

In John 3:16, God helped a man named Nicodemus understand what God’s love is all about. God knew our greatest need of a savior and did something about it. God gave us Jesus, His one and only Son, to be our savior. God did something about our greatest need for a savior by giving us Jesus, His gift to the world.

God did something about our greatest need. Jesus was God’s gift to the world and we pray that kids start to understand their need for a Savior and put their trust in Jesus.

At dinner tonight, ask, “What is the greatest gift you ever received? How did it make you feel to receive it?”

Motion :: Week of November 24

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse:“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9, (NIV)
Main Point: Work together to point others to Jesus. 
Bible Story: One Body but Many Parts | 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Cooperation is a spiritual concept that originates with God. God created us to work together in community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.

In 1 Corinthians 12:12-27,  Paul wrote to the church at Corinth about how the people who make up the Church are part of the Body of Christ. Paul talks about how God has given each of us a unique part to play as we share God’s love with others. When we cooperate, we can help others know more about Jesus.

Work together to point people to Jesus. Our kids can learn how to be the church even at a young age. Just think about the impact they could have on the world when they realize that how they work together could impact a person’s relationship with Jesus.

At bedtime, read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27. Together, brainstorm a list of your family and friends and say something special or different about each one.

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse:“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9, (NIV)
Main Point: Work together to help someone in need. 
Bible Story: Jesus Heals the Paralytic / Four Friends | Luke 5:17-26

Cooperation is a spiritual concept that originates with God. God created us to work together in community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.

In Luke 5:17-26, we discover a paralyzed man who just happened to have some really good friends. When His friends heard that Jesus was in town, they tried everything to get their friend to Jesus. In fact,  they cooperated, tore a hole in a roof, and dropped their friend down in front of Jesus while He was teaching. As a result of their faith and cooperation, a miracle happened.

Work together to help someone in need. When we see others with needs that seem huge and overwhelming, we too often think they’re too big for us to help and end up doing nothing. However, if we cooperate with others to meet their need, we have a better chance making a difference in their life and point them to God.

As you’re driving this week, think about the needs you see in your community. Together, pray for that need and then choose a time for your family to work together to help meet it.

Series Memory Verse:“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9, (NIV)
Main Point: Work together to help someone succeed. 
Bible Story: Joshua Wins the Battle Over the Amalekites | Exodus 17:8-13

Cooperation is a spiritual concept that originates with God. God created us to work together in community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.

In Exodus 17:8-13, Joshua was leading the Israelites in a fierce battle against the Amalekites. When Moses held up his staff, the Israelites were able to win the battle. When Moses got tired, Aaron and Hur came to the rescue and helped hold up his arms. The Israelites won the battle because of how they all cooperated together.

Work together to help someone succeed. Just like Hur and Aaron, it’s important for a child to realize that working together isn’t just about doing something for yourself. You can work with other people to help them win at life too.

At dinner tonight, ask, “What is something HUGE you’d love to do for someone else? How can you get others to help you?”
