This Month’s Memory Verse:
Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do. Ecclesiastes 4:9, NIrV
Jesus Heals a Man Who Could Not Walk / Four Friends | Luke 5:17-26
In week three, we head to a story found in Luke 5:17- 26. We discover a paralyzed man who just happened to have some excellent friends. When they heard that Jesus was in town, they tried everything to get their friend to Jesus. When they arrived, the place was packed. Instead of giving up, the friends went to the roof and tore a hole big enough to drop their friend down right in front of Jesus. Jesus did something unbelievable because of their faith and cooperation.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Work together to help someone in need.
When we see others with needs that seem huge and overwhelming, we often think they’re too big for us to help and end up doing nothing. However, if we cooperate with others to meet those needs, we have a better chance of making a difference in their life and pointing them to God.
Message to Parents
Learning to COOPERATE means that a person can think about and balance their own needs and wants with another person’s needs and wants. Many people think that COOPERATION means the child does what the adult wants. That’s not the case. True COOPERATION is a give-and-take between people that ends up with something they both agree on. COOPERATION is a skill that must be learned. Here are some things you can do with the children in your care to help them learn the skill of cooperation.
Now for your Kids...
Talk about the Bible Story with your kiddos. Ask them these questions:
- What did the friends do in our story today?
- Why is it important to work together to help?
- Talk about a time you helped someone in need. How did that make them feel? How did it make you feel?
- Who are a few people in need that you could help?
