Jesus tells us to “love each other.” What does that even look like? Well, it looks a lot like the way Jesus loved people when He was here on earth. Through everything He did and the stories He told, Jesus taught us to love each other. That’s why we’re telling these specific Bible lessons this month. We want to teach our children to love like Jesus. We’ll start with a story Jesus told, a parable. The first two weeks (March Weeks 1 and 2) has preschoolers hearing about the widow’s mite and how they can share (love) even when they have very little.
The next two lessons are from the life of Jesus that prepare us for the Easter message coming in April. They will hear how Jesus, the Son of God, washed the feet of His disciples (March Weeks 3 and 4). Even though Jesus was God’s Son, He still served those around Him. We want our preschoolers to know that we too can serve those around us, no matter who they are. We’ll end with the joyous celebration of Palm Sunday (March Week 5). As Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, He was preparing for the ultimate act of love. He truly exemplified the verse, “love each other.” We pray that through this month’s lessons, our preschoolers learn to love like Jesus.
The Monthly Memory verse is “Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12, NIV
The Bottom Line is I can love like Jesus.
