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, Jesus surprised His friends when He showed up on the beach and cooked breakfast for them. They were so happy to see Him!
Pack some of your favorite snacks. Grab a few stuffed friends and a blanket. Go outside and have a picnic together. Talk about how Jesus had a breakfast picnic with His friends. Jesus was a good friend to them, and He is our good friend, too!
