Last week, we learned that Jesus is a great healer as well as being a great teacher. We learned that Jesus healed people because He loves people and He expressed that love by meeting their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs. Also, by healing their bodies, Jesus gives us a physical example of how He can heal our hearts and souls.
This week, we will learn about Jesus’ compassion for the people who were so very hungry and how He used His miraculous power to meet their needs. Again, we learn from Jesus, the Great Teacher, about how to show others we love them and care about them.
Today, we will study about:
- Thanking God for everything He has given us and how we should wisely use what we have.
- Trusting in God’s unlimited resources – He always has whatever it is we need!
- Being good stewards by not wasting what God gives you, no matter how big or small it may be.

In today’s video, we learn Jesus provides for our needs because He loves people and, when He heals, He teaches us about being kind, caring and compassionate. Jesus meets our needs and we follow Jesus by helping to meet the needs of others. Let’s learn a little bit more….
SING & DANCE IN WORSHIP:
Worshipping together by lifting our voices with praise and thanksgiving is so pleasing to Jesus! Let’s lift our voices together and, while we are praising Him, let’s remember those around us who really need the Lord’s help today.
