FHE Lesson {Love Others}


Opening Prayer:

Matthew 22:35-39
1 John 4:20-21


Place a big sheet of paper with LOVE written in big letters in the middle on the floor.
{or on a whiteboard}

Who should we show love to?

Have children write and drew their answers all around the piece of paper.

Answers included :

Family, Mum and Dad, Sisters, Neighbours, Heavenly Father, Jesus, Cousins, Pets, Best friends, School Teachers, Primary Teachers, etc

Share the above scriptures:

Matthew 22:35-39

Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great Commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

 1 John 4:20-21
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
Discuss who is our neighbour,  who is our brother, how can we love others.

I am going to challenge the girls to love someone a little extra this week.

I will check with them to see what things they can do for someone whom they don't always get on with. eg. Classmates, their own sisters ;)  (eg share things with them, give a compliment, hold their tongue when they want to answer rudely back, invite them over, do a service for them)

Closing Song: We are Different #263

Closing Prayer:

Treat: Heart Chocolates! And maybe some to give away.
