Sunday Feature, February 28

Jesus uses the story of The Good Samaritan to completely change how people who follow Him should look at showing kindness to others. It’s not just for people we know or like, but for everyone we meet. Everyone is deserving of our kindness, whether they look, act or think like us or not. We hope kids learn from a young age, that God’s love is for EVERYONE. Jesus modeled love and kindness that included everyone. We should do the same.

Bottom Line: Be kind to people who are different from you.

Talk About It Together!

  1. What made the hurt man and the Samaritan different from each other?
  2. Did that stop the Samaritan from helping the hurt man?
  3. How can you be kind to someone who’s different from you?
