Hi all! Today’s lesson is from 1 Timothy 4:12, a letter Paul wrote to his friend, Timothy. (Our lesson and craft on this from last year can be found HERE).
Paul’s friend Timothy was kind of a young guy in the church and Paul wanted to remind him that even though he was young, he could still set an example for other Christians in the his speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
Do you know that grown ups can learn from kids sometimes? Even grown ups can learn to make better choices and be more like God. And kids who love God can be good examples. You can be a good example of God’s love in the things you say, the choices you make, the love you show other people, and by trusting in God. When we love God we want to do things He says are good for us.
Instead of fussing with your brother or sister, you can show them love. Instead of using mean words with a friend you can show love and use nice words (even if they aren’t.)
Don’t worry about what other people think (don’t let people look down on you) you just do the things you know God wants you to do. Even young people and even kids can be GREAT examples of God’s love.
This week, try to make good choices that show everyone what it means to really love Jesus.
Thanks for joining us again. Love to you all.
