Motion :: Week of December 29

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read 1 John 4:9-12 together as a family to learn about God’s love for us. God showed us how much He loves us by sending Jesus to be our Savior. We can love others because God loved us first. 

In Motion this December we’ve been learning about compassion — caring enough to do something about someone else’s need. The way we show compassion is connected to our source of compassion. Take a look at what this might look like in someone’s life today!

Here are a few activities you can use to help your child apply this lesson to his or her life in a fun way. You can choose to do one or both together as a family.

You can find additional activities, blog posts, and parenting resources at ParentCue.org.

Motion :: Week of December 22

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: Share the good news about Jesus.
Bible Story: Shepherds Visit Jesus | Luke 2:8-20

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!

As we head into Christmas week, we’re taking a look at Luke 2:8-20 to discover shepherds minding their own business and watching sheep in a field. Angels surprised them and announced that the Savior of the world was born. The shepherds were so excited they ran to meet Jesus and spent the rest of the night spreading the good news that Jesus was born.

Share the good news about Jesus. We want kids to start thinking about how they can share the good news about Jesus. From the words they say to the life they live, they can point people to Jesus and show God’s love to others.

At dinner, brainstorm people you know who have a need this Christmas season. Then, come up with ways that you can meet them!

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 gave us the greatest gift.
Bible Story: Jesus is Born| Luke 2:1-7

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 week three, we head to Luke 2:1-7, to take a look at the familiar moment when Jesus was born. Even though Jesus was born where the animals stayed, God took care of all the details. The Savior of the World was born, and God’s compassion for us was on full display.

God gave us the greatest gift. God had been planning a rescue since the very beginning. Jesus was God’s greatest gift to make it possible for all people to be with God forever.

As you’re driving this week, ask your kids how they’ve shown compassion and served others.

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.” 
John 3:16 (NIV) 

Practice reciting the memory verse together as a family. Then, come up with motions for the memory verse and practice them together.

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?”
