GRANDPA’S SUNDAY SCHOOL – UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
(GRANDPA and ALL CHILDREN enter)
GRANDPA Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a nice week! Let’s all start
by singing “Jesus Loves the Little Children.” (ALL sing) Today, we’re
going to talk about unconditional love. Who can tell me what that
ROCKY I know, I know! It means to love someone without conditions.
GRANDPA Very Good Rocky! So, what does it mean to love someone without
SANDY It means to love people no matter what they look like, who they
are or what they have done.
GRANDPA That’s exactly right, Sandy! So, why should we love everyone like
PIPER The Bible tells us that Jesus told us to love each other.
GRANDPA Thank you, Piper! In John 15:12, it says, “This is My commandment
that you love one another as I have loved you.” Can someone tell me
how we know that Jesus loves us?
RUSTY When Jesus died on the cross, He died for everyone so that they all
could be saved.
GRANDPA Yes, Rusty! The next verse, John 15:13, reads, “Greater love has no
one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 3:16
says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting
life.” So if God loves the world does this mean that some people can
not be saved?
GRANDPA So, we are also to love each other. We don’t have to die for our
friends to prove that we love them, so what are some ways we
can show our Christian love?
OPAL We can say nice things to them and say nice things about them!
GRANDPA That is a good start, Opal! What else can we do to show our love?
CRYSTAL We can do nice things for them like helping them with their
homework. I even helped a friend of mine with her chores so we
could have more time to play together.
GRANDPA Wow, Chrystal, I’m really proud of you for that! There are many
other ways we can show our love to others.
PIPER I walk home from school with a boy younger than me because he kept
getting picked on by bullies. They don’t bother him now!
GRANDPA That’s really nice of you to do that, Piper! I think that you all are
getting the idea of ways to love other people! The important thing is
that others see the love of Jesus in us. Why is this so important?
SANDY They will see the way we act around others and hopefully, they will
want the same. Many people don’t like the way they live and want
something better. We can tell them about Jesus, and that He died on
the cross for them. We can also tell them that they can go to heaven if
they have Jesus in their hearts, too!
GRANDPA Very good, Sandy! I couldn’t have said it better. I hope that you all can
find ways to show your love to others and you should also ask Jesus
to help you.
CRYSTAL I just want you all to know that I even love my brother Rocky even
when he misbehaves.
ROCKY O.K., O.K., Crystal, but I have been doing better lately, even Mom says
GRANDPA Crystal, it’s good that you love your brother like you do, but it’s
easier to love other Christians than those who are not. So, let’s all
try to find new friends who don’t go to church and show our love to
them because they need it the most. Let’s try to invite them to church
in the next coming weeks and don’t forget to pray for them. It’s about
time for us to go, so I’ll see you all later!
(ALL say goodbyes and exit)
