COMPASSION—Caring enough to do something about someone else’s need
Memory Verse: “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16, NIrV
WEEK 1 JOHN 3:16 God Loves the World
SAY THIS: God did something about our greatest need.
WEEK 2: LUKE 1:26-56 Gabriel Appears to Mary
SAY THIS: God can use anyone to meet others’ needs.
WEEK 3: LUKE 2:1-7 Jesus is Born
SAY THIS: God gave us the greatest gift.
WEEK 4: LUKE 2:8-20 Shepherds Visit
SAY THIS: Share the good news about Jesus.
Morning time: As a parent, you are always taking care of your child! But this time, do something out of the ordinary, like one of their chores, and tell them you wanted to do it to meet their need. Leave a note with the task you completed telling them you love caring for them!
Drive time: While on your drive, ask your child if they have ever had the opportunity to share the good news about Jesus. If they haven’t, maybe tell them about a time someone shared it with you or you with someone else. If your child feels nervous talking about it, tell them they can show the good news with their actions. Encourage them to either tell someone or show someone the love of Jesus today!
Q & A for kids: What is the greatest gift you ever received? How did it make you feel?
Q & A for parents: Share about a time you had a big need met by someone when you didn’t even ask for help.
Bed time: God sent His Son for everyone! Because of Jesus, we’re freed to love God and love others. So you can share the good news about Jesus with anyone you meet. That might be through your words or through showing God’s love in your actions. Pray that God will show you when and how to share the good news about Jesus with your words and through giving God’s love to others.
