Motion :: Week of February 24

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 aren’t kind to you.
Bible Story: Love Your Enemies | Matthew 5:43-48

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 aren’t kind to us.

Rewind | Love Your Enemies from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus expands the scope of who deserves our kindness. Not everyone will be kind to us; some may be quite mean to us. Jesus says that we should love our enemies and pray for them. When we discover ways we can show God’s love and kindness to people we might not get along with all of the time, we are doing what Jesus says by loving our enemies.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • How can you be kind to people you don’t get along with?
  • What are some kind ways to react to the small, irritating things that friends, family members, and others do to you?

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.

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?

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.
