Do You Have The Faith?

The Act of Kindness

Here's a group activity you can do with your friends:

Objective: You can learn how to show your faith by showing kindness to others.

Scripture Focus: "For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works." (Ephesians 2:10)

Before the group activity, print each word to the Scripture verse above, and shown below, on a sheet of colored paper (neon paper works great), or enlarge the words on a computer, horizontal layout, and print two to three words per page. (See the download below that you can print out as a sample.) Before beginning the object lesson, count the number of friends in your group and divide that number by the number of memory verse sheets you will be handing out, to determine how many pieces of candy will be needed by each person so that every friend in the group can receive one piece of candy.

Spiritual Application To Share:

God's Word tells us that you and I are God's workmanship. That means we were created by God himself. Ephesians 2:10 continues to state that we are God's workmanship (or creation) created to do good works (or things) for others.

Do you like to show kindness to others? If not, you should begin, because that's why God created you. He wants you to be His hand extended to others. How are people going to see God's kindness and love if it doesn't flow through us?

God's design is that we tell everyone about Him. Read it for yourself in Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15. But nobody will listen to us until we show them we care about them. Kindness. It's something that few people see these days. And it's an act that helps begin new friendships with others. Once you have made a friend and that person knows he or she can trust you, then you can begin to share your faith with that person.

That's why the apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 13, goes into great detail about showing love (or kindness) to others.

Read 1 Corinthians 13:13 and think about what Paul saying. Then ask God how you can begin to show kindness / friendship to others. It's important to God; do you think now that it should be important to you?

Now for some fun: Write the words below, in the order shown, on a piece of paper. Now try your best to memorize the Scripture shown below. Next, print the words as shown below on paper-suggested page size: 8½ inch by 11 inch (or typing paper). Mix up the pages real good and then lay them facedown on the floor. Now see if you can place the pages in the correct order.

Have fun playing this game, and then get serious about showing kindness / friendship to others and doing good things for others. In doing so, you'll make God happy and show others His love for them!
