Enjoy these responses from our last time in Sunday school, when we explored the story of Jesus giving the Sermon on the Mount.
(Thanks for the photos, Rolyn Rollins!)
I wonder what you like about this story. What is your favorite part?
*The lantern (light) and t he bird (g1)
*The part where he climbs the hill (g1)
*The golden rule (g2&3)
*The bird- don't worry (g2&3)
*Not to worry (g4)
*The lamp (g5)
*The end (g5)
I wonder what you think about the part where he tells the people how to be happy. I wonder what Jesus meant by that.
*God fills us up with love. (g1)
*God speaks to us when these things happen (g1)
*a little hard and crazy (g2&3)
*We can pray. (g4)
*God takes care of you (g5)
I wonder what Jesus might have meant by saying that we're the light of the world. What does it mean to cover your light and not share it?
*to share your kindness. Don't be jealous of other people. Share it (g1)
*Not talking to people about God (g2&3)
*If you cover your light, you're covering the nice and good part of you (g2&3)
*Showing no respect (g2&3)
*Being nice to people (g5)
I wonder how words kill.
*Mean things can kill somebody's feelings They might cry and feel sad. Words can hurt feelings.
*Insult and hurt their feelings (g2&3,4,5)
*hurtful, killing their souls (g2&3)
*Calling a person a name could make them a bad person (g2&3)
I wonder if a soldier asked you to carry his load, whether you would want to go an extra mile. I wonder why Jesus would ask us to do that?
*It would be really nice. (g1)
*It would be more helpful and he wouldn't be tired. (g1)
*I wouldn't (g2&3)
*You split the work in half (g2&3)
*Cleaning your room without being told (g4)
*Making something for someone (g4)
I wonder about how Jesus taught us to pray. I wonder what parts of a prayer are the most important.
*When you pray to God, he wants to hear you. (g1)
*When you talk to God, God always listens (g1)
*What you're praying about (g2&3)
*Who you're praying to- God (g2&3)
*Give us our daily bread, forgive our sins (g5)
I wonder if you worry. I wonder what you think Jesus wanted us to know about worrying.
*God wants to know how you are feeling all the time (g1)
*God wants you to think everything is ok and not to worry. If you are worried, you can pray. (g1)
*Yes, I worry (g2&3)
*Jesus said not to worry too much (g2&3)
I wonder about asking God for things. I wonder if God gives us everything we ask for. i wonder why or why not. I wonder what he means about knocking on the door.
*He wants you to tell him how you are feeling. (g1)
*God just can't give you things. He knows you can live without bikes, toys. He cares more about love and people (g1)
*No, he won't. Only what you need (g2&3)
*Knocking on the door to heaven-showing respect (g2&3)
*If you ask for something you really need, the door will open. How can you not worry? (g2&3)
*God does not give us everything we ask for. Maybe I need to change. (g5)
