God created us for friendships. He wants us to have friends, and He wants us to be a good friend to others. In fact, He wants it so much, God sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to show us how to be a good friend and make a way for us to be friends with Him forever.
Through children’s early relationships, they are learning how to be a friend, have fun with friends, get along with friends, problem solve with friends, resolve conflict with friends, and above all, love friends. This month, we hope children will learn that Jesus is their friend — the best friend they will ever have.
In this week’s lesson, we learned about the time Jesus entered Jerusalem and all the people praised Him by waving palm branches and shouting, “Hosanna! Hosanna! Yay, Jesus!”
