To prepare yourself spiritually to teach this lesson, please read and ponder the following:. Jesus Christ set a perfect example of kindness and love. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus showed His love for others by blessing and serving the poor, the sick, and the distressed. Begin with a gathering activity.
For ideas, see 3. Tell the children that when Jesus Christ lived on earth, He taught us to love others; He showed us how by the things He did. Invite the children to you.
Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought, hug self and turn from side to side. For these are the things Jesus taught. Show the children a copy of the scriptures. Tell them that in the scriptures we learn how Jesus showed love. Briefly tell the following stories:. Story 1 show the illustration on 27 : Many people had come to hear Jesus teach. They were there a long time and got very hungry have the children pretend to be hungry.
There was only a little bread and fish to feed all of the people. Jesus blessed the food and told His disciples to give it to the people. Everyone had enough to eat, and there was a lot of food left over have the children pretend to eat. See Matthew — Story 2 show the picture on 26 : One day Jesus saw a man who was blind—he could not see have the children cover their eyes. Jesus blessed the man so he could see have the children uncover their eyes.
See John — Story 3 show the picture on 22 : After Jesus was resurrected, He visited the Nephites. Because He loved the children, He blessed each one of them have the children hug themselves. See 3 Nephi — Invite the children to sing and do the actions with you. Find a piece of paper that is the same size as the picture or cut a piece of paper to the same size and cut the paper into three or four pieces to make a puzzle. For the scripture activity: Bring a copy of the Bible. Mark John so that you can turn to it easily. Jesus christ loves us the illustration activity: Copy the illustration on 27 for each.
Cover the picture of Jesus with the puzzle pieces. Ask to choose a piece. Read the phrase on the piece and have all the children repeat it. Discuss one way we can love others say thank you, share, do what Mother or Father ask, put toys away, and so on. Repeat with each piece until the illustration is completely uncovered. Reinforce the concept that Jesus showed us how to love others. Tell the children that in the scriptures Jesus taught us to love one another. When your heart is filled with love, put hand over heart.
Give each child a copy of the illustration on Ask the children questions about the illustration to remind them of the story you told them earlier. For example:. Can you see Jesus in the picture? Mark 22 in this manual so that you can turn to it easily.
Bring a copy of the scriptures. Invite to give the opening prayer. Jesus said love everyone; spread arms out wide Treat them kindly too.Jesus christ loves us
