Hi Reign Forest Friends,
For week three, we head to Matthew 5:41. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught, “Suppose someone forces you to go one mile. Go two miles with them” (NIrV). To us, that might sound strange, but to those listening—not so much. Roman soldiers could force them to carry their pack for a full mile. Jesus reminds His followers to go above and beyond in how they respond to others.
Bottom Line: Be kinder than you have to be.
Often kindness can feel like an obligation. Because of that, we tend to do the bare minimum when it comes to showing kindness. What if we helped kids look at it differently?
What if we helped them see that kindness can be extravagant and unexpected. It’s that sort of kindness that can change people’s hearts and show them how much God loves them.
Bible Memory Verse: Kind words are like honey— sweet to the soul and healthy for the body (Proverbs 16:24, NLT).
