Bible Story: We finish the month In Luke 10:25-37 and look at Jesus’ familiar parable of The Good Samaritan. Through this story, Jesus completely changed how people who follow Him should look at showing kindness to others. Kindness isn’t just for people we know or like, but it’s for everyone we meet.

Bottom Line: Be kind to everyone. Everyone is someone who God loves. We pray that our kids start to realize that everyone deserves kindness. We’ll help them discover simple ways they can put God’s love into action with the way they are kind to people they meet.

Key Question: How can you be kind, even when it’s hard? Kids are starting to experience friendships in a new way. They’re starting to realize that not everyone likes them, and they don’t necessarily like everyone either. This can be difficult for them to navigate, especially when it comes to showing kindness. We hope kids will discover how they can show kindness, no matter who needs it.

Extra Memory Verse: “Love one another deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.” Romans 12:10, NIrV
