Tossing a life line!
(Be careful of others)
by Gramma Cherbear
Greet new members and introduce them to
the class and the Critters.
Open the class with a prayer.
- We must be careful of the feelings of others.
We must not kill them in body or soul or spirit.
- (God Commands)
- Human life is very important to God. He is
the giver of life and forbids you from taking someone's life
from them. Jesus says it a little more clearly with His instructions.
He says it is wrong to even think about hurting someone. You
must be careful of others. There are many ways you could hurt
someone. Be sure that the words you speak do not damage some
- God has told us that we are not to commit
murder. We understand that we should not take another persons
life. Life belongs to God. But there is another way God does
not want us to kill! He does not want us to destroy others with
our mouth. We should always be careful with our words. Never
repeat a rumor. Do not tell lies about others. What we say can
hurt or kill a person's spirit. They can be destroyed inside
in the heart.
- (Blessed Are You!)
- Blessings come to those who are a blessing
to others. Helping a hurting heart can bring a 'broken spirit'
back to life. God knows our hearts and our reasons for doing
what we do. He will put our hearts to the test. He searches for
hearts that are unselfish and truly care about others. A damaged
heart can be healed with kindness and God's great love!
- (Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
- Tossing a life line!
- Someone has made fun of Emmi Squirrel. Emmi
is a very sensitive squirrel. She always wants to do good! She
wants to be the kind of squirrel God wants her to be. A lie was
told and is spreading through the forest. Emmi does not want
the other forest creatures to think badly about her. Emmi's heart
has been damaged. Cami Cub is a caring friend. She will help
Emmi's "broken spirit' to heal.
- Repeat today's Bible verses.
- When we are kind and good to others, God is pleased with
us. He will bless us for showing His Great Love to everyone.
He will use us to bless others when we do what is right.
Worship God with music.
