Love Dare For Elementary Students - Day Number 13

Day Number 13 - Love fights fair

Look up
Mark 3:25 in your bible.

Pray about Mark 3:25 and ask God what he is saying to you through the scripture.

Read the following: Do you remember the last really big argument you got into with someone? I'll bet it had some loud yelling and screaming, pouting, hurtful words and maybe even crying. God does not say that we will not get into arguments, but he does say how we should act when we get into arguments. We should stay calm and be careful not to say something that could really hurt the other person's feelings.

Your Challenge: Today, make a list of 3 rules that you will obey during arguments. They might include things like:
  1. I will not yell during an argument
  2. I will not say hurtful or mean things
  3. I will not cry
  4. I will try to understand the other person's feelings.
Pray over this list when you are finished writing it and commit to obey your rules whenever you get into your next argument.

In Christ,
- Steve
