Today in KidzPlayce

Go Kinda Crazy
*showing others they are valuable
by how you treat them*

Do to others what you want them to do to you.

Memory Verse

Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Luke 6:31

Bible Lesson

He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all. Looking at his disciples, he said:  
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God."
Luke 6:17-20 

But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
 Luke 6:27-36 

Small Group Time

Today in our small group we talked about
the 3 ways we can show kindness:
DO something! (words)
SAY something! (actions)
GIVE something! (gifts)
We talked about how the Holy Spirit prompts us and gives us the power to be kind. Jesus was our example in this as He gave His life for us.
We found the memory verse in our Bibles and highlighted it to share with our families.
We also talked about paying it forward and received KINDNESS coins to give to someone we are kind to this week and encouraging them to pass it on.
We prayed for God to reveal opportunities to be kind to others this week. 

Note to KidzPlayce Parents

Your child was given papers to bring home and share with you. The Refrigerator Door paper will tell you exactly what the lesson was today including the memory verse and Bible story. The God Time paper has something for you all to do together for four days this week. These activities will give you an opportunity to talk with your child about the lesson and have some great devotion time together as a family.

The KidzPlayce team feels so incredibly blessed to spend each week loving on your children and sharing God's Word with them. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you all each week.
