A few weeks ago in Studio 2:52, we learned about the Good Samaritan. You know the one who actually stopped to help the injured man after the priest & the Levite passed him by? In Luke 10. The story that has the power to change your outlook on actually living the way God intended. Helping a complete stranger in need. A stranger that is on the opposite spectrum of your life.
The kids really took to it. They understood what it meant to show love and kindness to someone who desperately needs them.
The teams had to wrap their injured boy in toilet paper, stick 15 bandaids on them, make them drink one glass of water, then carry them to the other side of the room on a blanket. They had so much fun, beyond the fact that they learned about being good samaritans.
Perhaps we could all use a refresher in what it means to be a good samaritan? It’s sometimes a daily decision I have to make to really choose a tongue of grace and a heart of compassion. If my class of 1st – 5th graders can understand it, so can I.
