Hi Journey Kids parents!
God is love. Love originated with Him. Our culture has often attempted to hijack love and define it according to societal whims. But God Himself defined it for us. He told us what love looks like – through His dealings with His people, through His Son, and then through one of His servants – a man named Paul. Paul spent the better part of one of his letters telling us exactly what love is.
When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.
Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story: Love Is…
Big Idea: God wants us to be good at the greatest thing, so we should show love to God and others.
Memory Verse: “The three most important things to have are faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of them is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIrV)
After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
God is love. Jesus embodied love. He calls us to live out love – in every moment of every day. In the mundane and ordinary. Let’s commit to living lives of love. Not love like the world defines it, but love like God defines it.
