This February In eKidz :: What We’re Learning

Kindness: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them
Memory Verse: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 (NIV)

God showed kindness by sending Jesus for us — even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of God’s love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit. And when you show kindness to others, you give them a glimpse into the heart of God and how much God loves them. Kindness should be a characteristic of people who follow Jesus. Not only did Jesus model kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated. When we practice kindness toward others, we’re actually living out the ultimate plan God has for the world.

There is a food truck for just about every kind of food, and when they’re all lined up, the whole community comes out. Some people like noodles. Others like tacos. Some people like hot dogs while others head straight for the funnel cakes! Next time you see a row of food trucks, look around at all the people in line. Take time to thank Jesus because Jesus loves everyone!

Bible Story: The Ten Commandments ● Exodus 19:9-11

This month we’re learning, “God is kind.” We are learning the story, “The Ten Commandments” in Exodus 19:9-11. In this story, God gave Moses ten rules to write down and share with everyone. God is so kind. He gave these rules because He loves us and He wants to help us make good choices. God loves all of us and He is kind to us!
