Road Rules: Ride with Respect

This Month’s Memory Verse:

Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIV

This Month’s Virtue:

Respect—Showing others they are important by what you say and do

God Is God

A Roman Commander Has Faith | Matthew 8:5-13

Jesus brought His followers to a mountain to explain to them what it means to live as part of God’s kingdom. During that message, Jesus said something surprising about loving others and treating them with respect. In Matthew 5:43-47 Jesus said, “You’ve heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor. Hate your enemy.’ But here is what I tell you. Love your enemies. Pray for those who hurt you.” Jesus wanted His followers to understand that being kind, loving, and respectful matters even more than we think. Everyone deserves a chance to be shown respect.

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

Bottom Line

Remember God is most important.

Kids might be able to tell you how important God is in their lives, but they might not understand how to show respect to God. It’s great to sing songs to God at church, but we can make God important in our everyday lives too. This will be a great week to talk about how we can remember God is most important by spending time learning about God in the Bible, praying to God about what’s happening in our lives, and making God a priority in our conversations with others. There are all sorts of ways kids can show how much God means to them..
