A Family of Kindness
Week #4
OBJECTIVE: To read and discuss what God says about kindness.
Feasting on the Word:
Mark 2:1-12 (the kindness of 4 friends)
Matthew 25:31-46
Family Discussion:
In the story in Mark 2, how did the friends of the paralyzed man show
kindness?
What might have happened to the paralyzed man if his friends had not
helped him get to Jesus?
How did Jesus show kindness to the paralyzed man? (2 ways)
In Matthew 25, Jesus explains that when we do something kind for another
person, we are also showing kindness to whom?
If Jesus were in the hospital, would you go visit him? If Jesus were hungry,
would you give him something to eat? Of course you would. When you
think of people who are in need, picture Jesus in that situation. It may make
it easier to show kindness!
Discuss Proverbs 14:21 and also verse 31. Think of some ways your family
can show kindness to needy people. Plan a project!
What is the opposite of kindness? Read Ephesians 4:31 and 32 to find out
how families should treat each other and how they should NOT treat each
other.
Challenge:
Each family member do at least one random act of kindness tomorrow.
Think of a way to be helpful to someone, or surprise somebody with an act
of love! Keep your idea a secret until it is done, then tomorrow night, tell
each other about your experience. How does it make you feel to be kind to
others?
Family Project: Take time to work on your family project. (Refer to list.)
