SERVICE—Lending a hand to help someone else
“Jesus sat down and called for the 12 disciples to come to him. Then he said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last. They must be the servant of everyone.” Mark 9:35, NIrV

Morning time: As you say goodbye to your child this morning say this: “Be on the lookout today for someone who needs help. Helping others is a way to show God’s love.”
Drive time: While driving tell your child to be on the lookout for ways we can serve. Is the park dirty? Let’s make a plan to clean it up! Pay for someone’s meal in the drive through. Talk about how you can help your teacher or a friend in school.
Q & A for kids: What holds you back from serving others sometimes?
Q & A for parents: Share about a time someone served you and it brought you joy.
Bed time: Read John 13. Jesus, God’s own Son, set aside what He deserved to serve His friends. We can serve our friends
and families and the people we meet every day. Together, brainstorm some creative ways that you could serve others at home, school, and in your community. Then choose one to do this week. Ask God to give each of you a heart and opportunity to serve others.
