God is one of a kind. He has no beginning and no end. Everything He has created is unique and one-of-a-kind, including people created in His image.
Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems. Jesus lived this out in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.
We took a look at Luke 15:1-17 to learn about Jesus’ parable of the lost sheep. In this parable, Jesus told the story about a shepherd who left 99 sheep behind to search for the one that was lost. Just like the shepherd in the parable, Jesus is our Good Shepherd who rescues us and makes it possible for us to have a relationship with God forever.
God wants to have a relationship with me. When it comes to individuality, it’s important we understand that God created us to have a relationship with Him. Through Jesus’ parable of the Lost Sheep, we hope kids will understand that God loves them so much, He made a way to have a relationship with them forever.
At bedtime, read Luke 15:1-7. Pray that you’ll always remember God loves you and wants to spend time with you.
