Good morning and Happy Sunday!
Today our Toddler and PreK friends will focus on Jesus taught us how to love one another. This week is all about what Jesus wants us to do now that He has gone to get Heaven ready for us. Jesus wants us to love one another. Loving one another looks like helping one another, sharing with one another, and being kind to one another. When we love like Jesus, people will believe us when we tell them that Jesus is alive and He wants to be their friend forever.
And our Kinder to 5th graders will head back to Genesis 26:1-6, 12- 22, 26-31. Isaac moved to a region where he reclaimed the wells that had belonged to his father, Abraham. For years no one had cared about the wells until they were reopened, then everyone started fighting over them. Instead of fighting, Isaac decided to give away the wells in order to make peace. Isaac simply walked away from what was rightfully his. And by walking away from the fight, those people changed their opinion about Isaac, and decided to trust him. Bottom Line: You can show you care about others by walking away from a fight. Sometimes creating peace with someone means walking away even if we’re not wrong. Often it takes a stronger person to have the self-control to walk away. We pray that kids will learn how they can choose peace when they want to argue and fight.
We LOVE this week's bible lessons. We hope you do too!
