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.
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.
