John 13:1-15
Jesus demonstrates the heart of a servant and his care for the disciples as He washes their feet. He cared for them and showed them how they should care for others. As you wash your child's feet, remind him that Jesus washed His friends' feet to show them He loved them. Talk with your child about some practical ways he can show love to his friends.

This month we’ve been talking about kindness, which is showing others they are valuable by how you treat them. No one can say, do, or give anything to us that tops what God did for us when He sent His Son to save us. He did this for all people, not just for people like us, and not because we’ve done anything to deserve it. He did it because He loves us. That’s why everyone is important and valuable to God. He made them, and He loves them like sons and daughters. And that’s one reason Jesus wants us to treat others kindly: to show them they are valuable to God. He goes so far as to say that when we treat others kindly, especially those less fortunate than ourselves, it’s as if we’re treating Him that way. So today challenge kids to look around pay attention to people. What do they need, and what can we do about it? Kindness opens doors to share God’s love.
