Monthly Big Idea
Kindness is showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
“You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient.” Colossians 3:12, NIrV
The Kindness of Jesus
Jesus showed us how to be kind.
Ruth and Naomi

Go the Extra Mile
Be kinder than you have to be.
Be kind to people who are different from you.
ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your kid starts their day, tell them about something they did or said that showed kindness. (Or maybe it was something they chose NOT to say or do.)
While on the go, ask your kid: “What is something kind you’ve seen someone say or do lately—even if it’s online?”
At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What are some ways Jesus showed kindness to people? How can we show people kindness in similar ways?”
Pray for each other: “Jesus, help us to show others kindness and compassion the way that You did.”
