This month, our preschoolers are learning we can love like Jesus. Watch this video and then take a look below at each week and the specific story your child will hear. As you scroll, you'll also see a few downloadable resources that you can use to help continue the conversation at home with your kids.
“Love one another.” That’s what the Bible tells us to do. That’s what Jesus tells us to do. It sounds easy, and it is…when it comes to those whom you already love. But, Jesus wasn’t just talking about your spouse and your kids. He was talking about everyone. That’s right. Jesus loves everyone, and He wants us to show His love to them too.
Loving one another means stopping to help even when others are ignoring the need. It means loving whether you have a little or a lot to give. It means loving a person even if he has wronged you in the past. Sometimes loving one another is easy, and sometimes it’s hard. However, it’s always worth it. Because when we love one another we are showing each other the love of Jesus. And that is what He’s asked us to do!
We want to offer you ways to help your children remember that Jesus is God's Son. Here's what we'll be talking about each week:
- March 5 - Jesus tells a story about a Samaritan man who stops to care for a stranger that was beaten and robbed. Luke 10:25-37
- March 12 - A man has a good crop that produces so much food that he builds bigger barns to hold it rather than sharing it with people in need. Luke 12:16-21
- March 19 - A poor widow gives everything she has to the temple offering. Mark 12:41-44
- March 26 - A son takes his inheritance from his dad and wastes it all. When he returns broke, dirty, and hungry, the father forgives him and loves him no matter what. Luke 15:11-24
