This week we learned that Jesus’ followers care for others. Jesus tells a story to show this. In Jesus’ story, a man is hurt on the side of the road, but two people just walk on by. A third man helps the injured man and gets him to an inn where he can receive care. Jesus wants us to care for others too. what are ways we can care for each other in our family. Talk about ways each member of you family can care for the others. Talk about ways you can care for others outside of your home.
Challenge everybody to do one of the following to build empathy for people in need. Choose something that’ll take you out of your comfort zone, such as:
– take a cold shower
– sleep on the floor with no pillow
– skip a meal
– eat lunch alone
– Pray for people who need care. Think about the activity you chose as you pray. Remind your family that Jesus-followers care for others—especially people in need.
