Help Me, Dear Father (Children’s #99)

Scripture

Luke 22:50–51

Lesson

  • Explain that after Jesus suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane, the wicked people came to take Him away
  • The Apostles tried to fight.  Read Luke 22:50–51
  • What does this tell us about Jesus?  He didn’t just stop the fighting, but He also healed the person who was going to hurt Him.
  • What should we do if someone hurts us or is mean to us?

Activity

Role-play several situations and give ideas about how Christ would react in each situation.  Here are some examples:

    • Someone at school says something mean to you
    • Someone at school is being unkind to someone else
    • A sibling takes a toy while you are playing with it
    • A person who has been mean to you before asks for your help with something
    • A friend doesn’t invite you to their birthday party

Treat
