My Grandma (4)
Bible Reading: Matthew 25:34-40
Thursday, August 2, 2012
My grandmother was a very kind and caring person. I remember when I was young, Grandma brought her parents to live with her. Her parents were very old and in poor health. But Grandma wanted to take care of them.
Sometimes my great-grandparents were grouchy and didn’t feel well. But Grandma was very patient with them. She prepared healthy meals for her parents and made sure that they were warm and comfortable. Grandma really showed that she loved her parents.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus told a story about how God is pleased with people who are kind and take care of others. When we help sick people or give food and clothes, we are doing those things for Jesus.
Do you know someone who needs help today? Don’t just tell them that you love them. Think of ways that you can show them your love. — CW*
“My children, our love should not be only words and talk. No! Our love must be true love. We should show our love by the things we do.” 1 John 3:18
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I want to serve other people today. Show me how I can love them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
