I hope you are staying safe and sane amidst the nasty little virus that is raging about! This week's freebie for home church, family home evening or church leaders to share with thier primaries or church worship classes is "Love His Children."
I chose "Love His Children" for this week because, while many of us are separated physically due to social distancing, this virus has been a good reminder of how local, national and global communities can come together to love and help one another and work together out of love for our human family....6 feet apart, of course! ;)
Throughout the scriptures, there are examples of how times of crisis were shown to have brought people together as they called upon God for help. Often it was the most difficult times that changed hearts and brought people closer to God and each other.
Times of uncertainty can bring fear and panic, but the best weapons against those are faith and love. When bad things happen, it does not mean God has abandoned us. He is in the trenches with us! His spirit is there to calm our troubled hearts! No matter what we face, He will be there to face it with us and help us through it. I love Him. I trust Him.
President Dieter F Uchtdorf stated, "Christ’s perfect love allows us to walk with humility, dignity, and a bold confidence as followers of our beloved Savior. Christ’s perfect love gives us the confidence to press through our fears and place our complete trust in the power and goodness of our Heavenly Father and of His Son, Jesus Christ. In our homes, in our places of business, in our Church callings, in our hearts, let us replace fear with Christ’s perfect love. Christ’s love will replace fear with faith!"
Pres. Uchtdorf's full talk, "Perfect Love Casteth Out Fear" is a great companion to this song, especially for adults or older kids. You can watch it HERE or read it HERE.
This bundle includes a flip chart to help teach this song, and some questions to consider for kids or family discussion are:
What are some ways that Jesus shows He loves me?
What are some examples of Jesus showing us how to love?
What are some examples of Jesus showing love to those who were different, or believed differently than He did?
What are some ways in which I am unique or different?
What are some ways in which other people I know or do not know are unique or different?
How can I show love when I am social distancing?
When bad things happen, does it mean God doesn't love us?
When God doesn't take away problems, does He show us He loves us in other ways?
How can I show the kind of love Jesus did to others around me?
How does love for my Savior and Heavenly Father cast out fear?
Last week, some people asked about my products other than the freebie. So I have decided to offer all of my music and products on KristineCox.com at 50% off this weekend as well.
I hope this helps to bring more love and faith into your heart and home(s) at this tumultous time in our world!
