Over the weeks we have learnt about Love, Joy,
Peace and Patience.
Last week we learnt you ought to be patient with your family,
how were you patient this week? (Allow response)
Your friends can get on your nerves, how were you patient with
them this week?
Strangers can also be very annoying. How were you patient with
them this week?
Enemies can make you mad. How were you patient with them this week?
Remember we learnt that you need to be patient with all these people.
Do you know why? (Because Jesus Christ was! )

Super Fruits Lesson #6 Visual Aids
Kindness starts with caring —being tender hearted and compassionate
toward others. If God wants us to be kind to animals, how much more
to people! (Read Proverbs 12:10).
Biblical kindness involves action. “Dear children, let
us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by
our actions” (1 John 3:18).
Action usually includes some kind of effort of self-sacrifice and
therefore generosity on our part, especially of our time.
Of course, the emphasis on deeds over mere words does not mean
words are unnecessary. Action includes words. Encouraging words
of comfort, courtesy, compliments are acts of kindness. What to
say and not say should be guided by awareness of the sensitivities
of others. We must help people heal from their emotional wounds
rather than rubbing salt in those wounds.
Our motive for “good deeds” should not be to impress
people (Read Matthew 6:1-4). The greatest rewards
from God come when our acts of kindness are done humbly and quietly
with no one even knowing. Genuine kindness is lending a helping
hand when you expect nothing in return.
Jesus Christ emphasized that we must be kind to everyone, not just
our family and friends It takes genuine effort to be truly kind.
(Read Galatians 5:19-21), the apostle Paul refers
to human nature as “the flesh” or “works of the
flesh.” Eg: Hatred, jealousies, selfish ambitions and envy.
Kindness requires the opposite, caring concern for others.
Jesus Christ practiced kindness that was radical for that age and
culture. He always had great concern for women as well as men, for
children as well as adults, for other races as well as the Jewish
race, and for the sick and weak as well as the strong. Often He
wore Himself out praying for people, healing people, feeding people
and helping them in other ways.
When Jesus looked on the multitudes of people with all their problems,
sicknesses and confusion, He was “moved with compassion”
(Matthew 9:36; Matthew 14:14; Matthew 18:27). As
we look at the people around us, we, too, should be moved with compassion.
We, too, should be helping, giving, sharing, caring, encouraging,
extending mercy, filled with compassion and acting on it as we are
able—in a word, KIND.
The Parable of the Good
Jesus told a story about a man who was travelling from Jerusalem
to Jericho when he was attacked by robbers.
Let’s read Luke 10:25-37

Jesus asked, "Which of these three men was a neighbour
to the man who was attacked by the robbers." (The one
who helped him.)
Jesus said, "Now you go and do the same."

‘Being Kind’ teaching
Min-jun is a new boy at school he is from South Korea .(Get a boy to volunteer, put a wrap around him and a head band, give him glasses and a book.) He doesn't know anybody; his clothes are different than the other kids'; he wears thick glasses, and doesn't speak English very well.
Look at how these three boys treat him:
Child 1: Thinks he’s a bit strange and stays away from him. (Volunteer turns away from him)
Child 2: He thinks he looks ugly and proceeds to tell everyone: "Hey! Look at the ugly, stupid, boy!"
Child 3: He also thinks he looks different too. But, instead of ignoring him or mistreating him, he smiles at him and shows him around the school. (Volunteer greets Min-jun, takes his hand and starts chatting with him and showing him around)
Which boy was kind to the new kid in class?
Was it Child 1 who avoided him?
Or Child 2 who laughed at him?
Or Child 3 who paid attention to him, thought about his feelings,
and tried to meet his needs?
That’s what kindness is--it's paying attention to other people,
their feelings, and their needs.
ACT OF KINDNESS PAPER CHAIN.
A link is added every time a random act of kindness is witnessed
(The loops are made out of paper). We then send a certificate

a random act of kindness today!" The kids love it!
Hang the chain around the room and add to it throughout the year.
