Bible Point: Being kind honors God and others
Key Verse: Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.” Romans 12:10
We learned today that David honored Mephibosheth by allowing him to eat at the king’s table and by giving him all that had belonged to Saul. We also learned that when we’re kind, we honor God and others (2 Samuel 9). Strengthen your family’s faith learning and growth at home with this easy idea:
- Talk about a time someone unexpectedly showed kindness to you. Share how that kindness impacted you and your relationship with that person.
- Then ask your children to tell about times people have shown them special kindness—help with a difficult subject at school, willingness to teach a new skill, or a hug when needed, for example.
- Then talk about why God wants us to be kind to others and why showing kindness is so important.
Lord, thank You for David’s example of how to show kindness to others. Help us to be kind to each other in this family and to let that kindness overflow to the people around us so they’ll see You in everything we do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
