This weekend in CedarVille, we learned that God loves when we are kind! In all circumstances, we should be kind to others and show them that they matter!
With your family, take time to read about Jacob and Esau in Genesis 25:19-34, 27: 1-46, 32:3-21, 33:1-11. Also take some time to read a key verse from this weekend:
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.”
-1 Corinthians 13:4
Family Discussion Questions:
Who are Jacob and Esau’s parents? What was Jacob doing when he was born? Why was it so special to be the firstborn son? What did Esau exchange his birthright for? When Isaac was old and blind how did Jacob trick him? After taking the blessing, what did Jacob do? A few years later Jacob was married and living in another place. What did Esau bring to him? What did he say and do? Do you think they forgave each other; why?
This week we learned about showing someone we love them by being kind. One way to be kind is by our actions. We can speak kindly to someone, help someone up when they fall, or high five someone for doing a good job. There are all sorts of things you can do to be kind! As a family make a plan on what you could add to your week to show kindness to someone. Take a piece of paper and write or draw your plan. Then have everyone in the family sign it as a contract to follow through! Have fun and be creative!
In CedarVille, we have the opportunity to memorize a verse and earn a special treat. It makes all the difference when families work on memorizing the verse together! This week take time to practice Galatians 5:22-23 NLT. The verse is found below. Check out our CedarVille.tv Facebook page for motions that can help your family learn the memory verse together!
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” – Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
