Hello again! Today we’re talking about love. The Bible says God is love. It also says that God loved us so much that He gave up His only son, Jesus, to die for us.
Our study today comes from 1 Corinthians 13.
It tells us that love is the most important thing. But what is love? These verses tell us that love is kind and patient. When you love someone you don’t try to sound better than them, and you are not rude. Real love doesn’t remember the bad choices people make, but forgives them. Love is not happy when bad things happen, but it protects and keeps safe. Love trusts and hopes and never gives up.
Do you know anybody who loves you like that? Maybe your mom or dad or grandparents? They are patient and use nice words, they keep you safe and never give up on you.
God is love too.
These verses also say that if even we could talk in a bunch of languages or use really big words to tell people about Jesus, but we don’t do it in love, then it’s just a bunch of noise. Even if we know everything in the whole world, it means nothing if we don’t love.
There are lots of things people do, but the only one that matters is love. How can you show love? How can you show love to your mom? What can you do to show your dad you love him? How can you love your brother/sister? How can we love people we just met?
For our craft, we cut out hearts and glued heart type things to them. Then I asked my kids what “love is” and let them answer. (It took *some* examples, but they caught on.) Here are our finished products.
Here are links to two videos we found cute and helpful to reinforce these verses.
Next time we’ll be learning about generous giving.
Love to you all.
