Adults/Teens: Are we truly up for the challenge that Jesus has given us today? Are we willing to go as far as our Savior did to show the world the kind of love our Heavenly Father has for us? Ask God to open your heart this week as He makes radical changes in your life, if you allow Him to.
Take a moment to reflect on Jesus and His presence in your life. Pray together, aloud, the Our Father.
Children: Jesus tells us today that it is better for us to love than to hate. He is right. Even when people are mean to us, it is up to us to decide if we will harm them back, or forgive them and move on. It is often hard to forgive someone that hurts us, but that is what Jesus calls us to do. We have the power to show others how great God is by the way we love here on the earth.BACK TO LIST
