Through the Bible Felt: Story #129
Who should have helped the hurt man?
Who did help the hurt man?
Give me an example of some ways that you can be kind to people.
Some stories talk about the Good Samaritan being a "foreign man". In this story a foreign man represents someone who is different than you.
How can we be kind—even to people who are different than us?
Verse: Matthew 7:12 - Do to others what you would have them do to you.
“Do to Others” - Steve Green – Hide 'Em in Your Heart Vol. 1 - #2
Bible Song: B-I-B-L-E (Traditional)
The B-I-B-L-E (make book with hands)
Yes, that’s the book for me (nod “yes”)
I stand alone on the Word of God (pretend to stand firm)

Lifesavers - To "save" you from feeling bored.

1. Give each child a copy of the list above that you have already printed, a zip-lock bag, and one of each item in the list.
2. Let the child put their items and the list in the zip-lock bag and seal it.
3. Punch two holes somewhere near the top of the zip-lock bag and have the child string a ribbon through the holes and knot it for a nice decoration.
