The Magnetic pull of Love

  1. 1. The Magnetic Pull of Love Thanks for inviting us to go camping with your family! Oops!
  2. 2. But I’m already washing the dishes. You left the biggest mess, so you should clean the table.
  3. 3. Jesus asked those of us who love Him to also “love one another.”1 1 John 13:34 While studying a Bible class. People who pass by our camp and observe us can easily notice if we are getting along and being nice to each other, or if we’re arguing. And later, if we have an opportunity to tell them about Jesus, they’ll remember what they saw. People need to see the love of God put into action in the lives of those who love Jesus. We can do this by helping each other and by living in harmony with each other. It’s also important to forgive each other when something goes wrong. But, Mommy, it’s hard for me to be nice to others all the time.
  4. 4. I agree that it is difficult at times. We all have different personalities, and it’s hard to always be considerate and understanding of each other. Sometimes we feel something is unfair, or we’re tired, or the other person has maybe done something that hurts our feelings. Jesus lived for thirty-three years on earth, and He knows from experience that it’s not easy for us to always be kind and considerate of others. But though it wasn’t easy, He was always an example of God’s love, and He is eager to help us do the same. Through prayer and studying God’s Word, we can gain strength from Jesus to do as He did.
  5. 5. Look up the key Bible verses mentioned on this page. Jesus promised that as we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us.2 He can then fill us with more of His loving understanding for each other. (2 James 4:8) It’s important for us to be kind to each other and to forgive each other like Jesus has forgiven us.3 (3 Ephesians 4:32) “Love one another; as I have loved you” (John 13:34 AKJV). We want to show people what Jesus is like, and let His light shine through us.5 (5 Matthew 5:16) I need to think about how others would feel and treat them like I want to be treated.4 (4 Matthew 7:12)

Walter really enjoys playing with them. I saw the children helping clean your campsite this morning. I wish Walter was more helpful. Here’s my phone number. Call me, and maybe we can meet at the park for our children to play together once we get home. I would be so happy if Walter could learn more about Jesus and spend time with your children. I’d also like for my kids to get to play with Walter again. I can see they are enjoying their time together. Loving consideration is like a magnet that attracts people to want to know more about Jesus! They have their difficult times too. This morning they prayed and asked Jesus to help them. That made a big difference.
