Kindness Wk4

Kindness

Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?

ROMANS 2:4 (ESV)

God is so kind to us. He wants us to repent of our sin and to be like Him. By knowing God, it becomes natural for us to be kind. Watch the video below to learn how kindness was part of the story regarding Balaam and his donkey.

 

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: Numbers 22: 21-39

2) Family Time:

  • Discussion: After reading the story of Balaam, read these two scriptures:
    • 2 Peter 2:15. They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam, son of Bezer, who loved the wages of wickedness, and
    • Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Korah.
  • Knowing that Balaam was willing to take money from Balak, do you think that he really had a heart to be obedient to God? When someone is disobedient to God, do you think it can lead to being unkind to others? Have you ever experienced a time when you knew that you were being disobedient to God? How did that make you feel? How did you treat others when you knew you were willingly disobeying?
  • Activity: Use the following acrostic or create your own. Make a poster and decorate it.
    • K indly deeds without being asked
    •  I niatitve to look for ways to be kind
    • N eighborly in all circumstances
    • D ecent toward everyone
    • N oble – forgiving and humble
    • mpathetic for the sick and injured
    • S incere in helping others
  • 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?
  • Here is a link to a fun song about Balaam!
