It is comforting when someone shows us compassion. Compassion is more than merely recognizing that someone is carrying a heavy burden, and then sympathizing with them—it is actually doing something to lighten their load. The Good Samaritan was willing to cross political, racial, cultural and social barriers and risk prejudices and the fear of the unknown because he saw someone with a need and he used his resources to meet that need.
This week our Sunday School lesson is about the Good Samaritan. We are providing online children’s books and YouTube videos about compassion on the lesson page. Our children have seen a lot of unsettling things in the media this past week. These resources may help the grown-ups initiate a dialog with their child about what they have witnessed. The greatest gifts we can give to our children are time and unconditional love. We have rainbow and donut Kindness crafts, candy and ice experiments and kindness cootie catchers for you to share with your kiddos. Thank you for sharing His GRACE!
