Love Dare For Elementary Students - Day Number 7

Day Number 7 - Love believes the best

Look up
1 Corinthians 13:7 in your bible.

Pray about 1 Corinthians 13:7 and ask God what he is saying to you through the scripture.

Read the following: Think about a person that you love a whole bunch. It might be your mom, your dad, a brother or sister, a grandparent, maybe a friend, a teacher. It doesn't matter who they are, think of someone you love very much. Now, think about all the great things about that person. Don't you love to think about all the great thing that person does? Maybe they help you whenever you are in need. Maybe they always hug and kiss you. Maybe they love to spend time with you. But, what about the things about that person you don't like too much? Maybe they are really strict. Maybe they sometimes embarrass you in front of your friends. True love says that you need to spend more time thinking about the good things that person does than the bad. True love says that you need to tell that person how great they are!

Your Challenge: For today, make 2 lists. One list has the good qualities of a person you love very much, the other list has the bad qualities of the same person. Tell that person today one thing from the good list and make them smile. Keep both of these lists sealed in an envelope because you will need them later.

In Christ,
- Steve
