Quest :: Week of March 18

Bible Story: Good Samaritan | Luke 10:25-37
Main Point: I can love by helping.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)

It’s time to pull out all the construction tools and get ready to build into kids a love for others. The Bible is full of great examples of how to love others. Whether we are loving by helping or sharing what little we may have, we can love like Jesus, with an unconditional love.

In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells a story about a Samaritan man who stops to care for a stranger who was robbed.

Jesus saw rich people who had lots of money making a big deal out of how much they were giving. They wanted everyone to see them! But then Jesus saw the poor woman come and place all the money she had — just two small coins — into the box at the temple. The woman wanted God to know how much she loved Him by giving ALL she had even though she only had a little!

God’s not worried about how much or how little we have. Even when we only have a little, God wants us to love Him and love others.

Quest :: Week of March 11

Bible Story: Bigger Barns | Luke 12:16-21
Main Point: I can share when I have a lot.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)

It’s time to pull out all the construction tools and get ready to build into kids a love for others. The Bible is full of great examples of how to love others. Whether we are loving by helping or sharing what little we may have, we can love like Jesus, with an unconditional love.

In this week’s lesson, a man builds bigger barns to hold his crop rather than sharing it.

The farmer in the story didn’t show love because he was selfish and wanted to keep everything for himself. Jesus wants us to love and help each other. We can do that by sharing what we have. We can share when we have a lot.

Quest :: Week of March 4

Bible Story: Good Samaritan | Luke 10:25-37
Main Point: I can love by helping.
Memory Verse: “Let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7a (NIV)

In this week’s lesson, Jesus tells a story about a Samaritan man who stops to care for a stranger who was robbed.

Two men passed right by the man who was hurt without stopping to help. But the man on the donkey, who was called a Samaritan, knew he could love by helping. He loved the man like Jesus loves us because he stopped to help. Jesus loves everyone, and He wants us to show people love, too! A great way we can show love is by helping everyone who needs help.

Jesus wants us to come to Him – anytime, anywhere – just come. Jesus shows He loves us by helping us. And, Jesus loves us no matter what.

Jesus forgave the woman for her bad choices and let her wash His feet. Jesus loves us and will forgive us if we make bad choices, too. Jesus loves us when we’re happy and things are going well, and He also loves us when we’re sad or when bad things happen. Jesus loves us no matter what, and His love for us is SO BIG!
