TALK: Consider some of these ideas
“And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’” (Matthew 25:40)
- How would Jesus be received if he walked on the earth today?
- In what ways have you betrayed Jesus? How could you make a change so that Jesus is first in your life?
- For the littles: Would you rather feed a hungry person or visit someone who’s sick? Why? Jesus loves when we do either one, or both!
PRAY: O Lord, you long for your people to care for one another with the same compassion you show to them. Move our hearts in love wherever we encounter need and make us more like you with each day. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
BLESS: May God bring out the best in you. Amen.
