Christ-like Love Day #3

Day #3 Christ-Like Love
Attention Activity:
Ask who has the longest hair, who is the tallest, whose nails are the longest, etc. (things that can be measured) Then ask who has the most Christ-like love.  How do we measure this?  Through our actions. 
True love requires action. We can speak of love all day long—we can write notes or poems that proclaim it, sing songs that praise it, and give lessons that encourage it—but until we put that love in action, our words are nothing but “sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” 1 Corinthians 13:1.

Christ did not just speak about love; He showed it each day of His life. He did not remove Himself from the crowd. Being amidst the people, Jesus reached out to the one. He rescued the lost.  He not only taught but also showed us how to “succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.” 

Read Matthew 25: 35-40.  "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."  When we love and serve other people, we are showing our love for Jesus.

Service Activity:
Take this opportunity to do some service.  This can be anything appropriate for your family.  In our family, we are writing cards and taking them to people with a plate of treats.

Write in your journal how you felt when you found out you were doing service.  Then write about how you felt after your service.  Write your feelings about how Jesus showed His love while on the earth and how He continues to show his love for us. What else can we do to show love daily?  Make a list or set some goals about how you can be more service-minded.
