This week, kids learned in Luke 6:27-38 about Jesus’ call to love even our enemies. Jesus taught that we are to treat our enemies and friends in the ways that we want to be treated. Jesus knew most are likely to love and care for their friends, but He said even sinners treat their friends well. Kids learned that they can be generous and kind even when others aren’t kind and loving to them. And Jesus calls us to humbly recognize that He has treated us in kindness and love, even when we haven’t reciprocated to Him. So we can follow His example of how to love others, and when we do, we will be blessed. Bible Memory Verse: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
