Christians Care for One Another

Key verse:

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching”
(Hebrews 10:24-25)

Our hope is for our kids to: Have faith in Jesus

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Psalm 23; Acts 2:42-47) The early church would often meet together for fellowship. They would eat together and likely discussed all the things that Jesus had taught them. After the Holy Spirit came upon them at the day of Pentecost, and 3000 people became saved, all the believers were unified. They began to share everything they had with each other and made sure everyone’s needs were met. This is the ultimate display of “loving your neighbor” and it definitely united the believers into a strong community. They certainly remembered the words of Jesus when he said, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35)

Share:
Talk with your children about ways that your church has shown you or your family loving care. Perhaps your church brought meals when a baby was born or helped out when someone had died or was sick. Even teachers at church show loving care to your children and you. Tell your family what it has meant to you to receive loving care from your church. Then think of ways that your family can show loving care to others at church as well.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
One night during the week, take your family for a meal. Convince them that you only have enough money to buy each person an incomplete meal. For example, maybe one member of the family doesn’t get a drink, another person will not get a side order, and so on. As you begin to eat, see if everyone begins to share. If not maybe bring up how the early church shared everything so no one was without or in need. As you begin to share discuss how the early church must have felt, and compare that to how the family feels about their experience sharing.
