Care For The People In Your Neighborhood

This Month’s Memory Verse:

“The Lord has shown you what is good. He has told you what he requires of you. You must act with justice. You must love to show mercy. And you must be humble as you live in the sight of your God.”

Micah 6:8, NIrV

By Your Side

Jesus Talks with a Woman from Samaria | John 4:1-30, 39-42

In week two, we head to John 4:1-30, 39-42. Samaria was a region that the Jews in Jesus’ time tried to avoid. But rather than walking around this region, Jesus took His disciples straight through it and stopped at Jacob’s well. While He was there, a Samaritan woman came to the well. He spoke with her and completely changed how she understood the Messiah and what God was doing in the world. She left and spread the news about Jesus to the people she knew.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Bottom Line

Show others that they matter.

When Jesus took the time to have a conversation with the Samaritan woman, He showed her that she mattered regardless of who she was or what she’d done. The truth is that we all matter and are valuable to God. When we care for others, include them, and spend time with them, we help them see how much they matter to God and us.
