Giving Like Jesus
Theme- Jesus sacrificed his life for us. He gave everything He had. When we follow Jesus we give to others because of what he gave to us. We can show our love and thankfulness by giving sacrificially to others. Through giving we can help lead others to Christ.
1 Chronicles 21:16-26, Luke 21:1-4, Matthew 25:31-40
