Show respect even when you don’t get along. ● Matthew 5:43-47
As a family, discuss a few questions together after your child watches this week’s Motion episode.
Question #1: When is it hard to get along with someone?
Question #2: Read Matthew 5:43-44. Jesus told us that we should love our enemies and pray for people who are mean to us. Is it possible to not like someone but still show them respect? What are some ways we can do that?
Question #3: What things might happen if we are disrespectful to people it’s hard to get along with? How can showing those people respect lead to GOOD things?
Question #4: Why does every person, whether we get along with them or not, deserve our respect?
Read the Bible — by yourself and with others. Try different translations. Set aside a special, quiet time to dive in.
Ask questions to help you understand — who’s the author, who are they writing to, and how does this part of the Bible point you toward Jesus?
Yak — share about what you’re learning and what God is showing you, especially with friends who don’t have a relationship with Jesus or want to learn more about Him.
Read: 1 Corinthians 16:14— Write down what the verse means to you!
Ask: How can this verse help you show respect to others even when you don’t get along?
Yak: Share what you read with someone. How do they show respect to others?
