Kindness Wk2

Kindness

And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.

EPHESIANS 4:32 (CSB)

Some people think that there should be more kindness in the world. If you want more kindness in the world, start with your own behaviors. Watch the video below to learn how kindness was demonstrated when Rebekah was at a well.

 

Memory Verse:

But when the time came for the kindness and love of God our Savior to appear, then He saved us, not because we were good enough to be saved, but because of His kindness. . .

TITUS 3:4, 5a TLB

Going Further

Hi Everyone! A couple of ideas for family activities after watching the video:

1) Read/Review: Gen. 24:2-4; 10-20, 22-23, 26-27

2) Family Time:

  • Discussion: Abraham’s chief servant prayed for God to show him kindness in finding a wife for Isaac. After he asked her for a drink, what did he pray she would do if she was truly the one chosen by God to be Isaac’s wife? Camels drink a lot of water! Over five gallons each if they are thirsty enough. Do you think it was a lot of work for Rebekah to walk back and forth, back and forth, filling her jug with water and emptying into the trough until the camels had enough? What made her really special is that she offered to water the camels. She had to be oh, so tired! The servant had to be hot, dusty, and probably in need of a bath. Do you think you could offer such kindness to a stranger? How does this story show God is kind?

    • S incere in helping others
    • S erve with a smile
  • Definition of KINDNESS: showing others you value them through thoughtful actions and words. Is it easy to be kind to someone who has been mean to you or to a beggar on the street? Maybe God prompts you to write a letter or call a grandparent. Your kind deed may be all someone needs to know that someone loves them.
  • Pray together as a family: Is there someone in your family who has not yet accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior?
