Love One Another
Sometimes when we feel hurt, rejected and unloved the first response is to behave the same way back to the offender. Christ taught another way. He taught us to love our enemies, bless those that curse us, do good to them that hate us and pray for them which despitefully use us and persecute us! What a challenging charge! We hope this lesson will teach the unconditional and gentle kindness that we can give to all around us no matter their treatment of us.

Print the six circles for the “Emotions Activity” and place them in a bag or any other container to draw from.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Invite the children to reach into the bag and randomly pick an emotion (without looking). Instruct children not to let anyone else see the emotion that they picked. After everyone has picked an emotion, take turns showing your emotions with facial expressions and see if the others can guess what emotion they are showing.
1) Were you able to guess the emotions correctly? (Yes.)
2) How? (Looking at the expressions on people's faces.)
