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 others because God is kind to you.
Bible Story: Kindness Principle | Titus 3:4-7
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 others because God is kind to us.
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.
At dinner this week, ask:
- What does kindness look like?
- What are some ways you can choose kindness this week at home? at school?
The Bring It! Challenge
We want kids to Bring It! to church. The Bring It! Challenge encourages Motion kids to bring themselves, their Bible, and scripture they’ve learned to Motion. Not only can kids be rewarded for bringing it, but the Bring It! Challenge is a fun way to grow and learn more about God and how He wants us to live.
During Rewind, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND Luke 6:31 in their Bible, RECITE it from memory, and SAY what our series virtue, kindness, means!
