Kid Life – Be Kind to People Who are Different from You

We finish the month with a familiar parable found in Luke 10:25-37. When the religious leaders tried to make themselves look good, they try and trick Jesus with a question. If we’re supposed to love our neighbor as
we love ourselves, who exactly is our neighbor? Jesus answers with the parable of The Good Samaritan. Jesus used this story to completely change how people who follow Him should look at showing kindness to others— it’s not just for people we know or like, but for everyone we meet.

Bottom Line: Be kind to people who are different from you. Everyone is deserving of our kindness, whether they look like us or not. We hope kids learn from a young age, that God’s love is for everyone. We can’t hold back kindness from others just because they might look or act different from us. Jesus modeled a love and kindness that included everyone. We should do that same.

FEBRUARY MEMORY VERSE
“YOU ARE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE. YOU ARE HOLY AND DEARLY LOVED. SO PUT ON TENDER MERCY AND KINDNESS AS IF THEY WERE YOUR CLOTHES. DON’T BE PROUD. BE GENTLE AND PATIENT.”
COLOSSIANS 3:12, NIRV
