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.

Scripture:
1 Chronicles 21:16-26, Luke 21:1-4, Matthew 25:31-40

Memory verse for this rotation:

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”  Colossians 3:17

Concepts:

1. Jesus gave His life for us. He is our example of sacrificial giving.

2. We give thanks to God. We give to others because of the priceless gift he gave to us.

3. When we give like Jesus (sacrificially) it costs us something. We must give up something. (1 Chronicles 21:16-26, Luke 21:1-4)

4. We show our love and thankfulness to the Lord by giving to others. It is as if we have given to Him.(Luke 21:1-4)
