"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
God wants us to do good to everyone, but we should especially look after other Christians as they are part of God's big family. Teaching children about the persecution of Christians isn't always easy. But with one in ten Christians living in context of discrimination, harassment or violence because of their love for the Lord Jesus, this is a topic that cannot be ignored. This children's resource is packed with ideas to help you run a dedicated children's lesson or event. It includes a Bible lesson plan, games, a song, stories and more on a theme of loving our Christian brothers and sisters that suffer pressure and are persecuted.
The material will help children:
- understand that being a Christian is like being part of a family.
- learn that some members of our family are suffering because of their faith in Jesus Christ.
- consider how we can help Christians who are suffering.
Learning about the faith of persecuted Christians, even the very youngest ones, will ultimately strengthen our own faith and point us to a God who cares for each of His children.
