It’s not about being rich or famous, it is how we care for others that matters. The world looks for achievement through earthly accomplishments such as wealth and fame but God wants people who love Him more than anything else; He defines true greatness with selflessness- respecting those around us while caring deeply about their needs.
It’s not easy to be a servant. We all have selfish tendencies, and unfortunately it’s the opposite of what we need in life: service! Children are no different than adults as they can easily learn how act selflessly by taking on responsibilities at an early age with guidance from parents or teachers who will reward their good behavior through kind words rather than rewards (like toys).
In order for more people today experience this type generosity, we must start training tomorrow’s generation today.
How to teach kids to care for others
We all want the best for the kids our Sunday School classroom, but sometimes it can be difficult when they’re so busy being their own person and not giving a second thought about anyone except themselves. Teaching kids empathy from an early age will help set up a life long habit in how they care for othres- no matter who they are or what their needs might be!
It’s no secret that children are naturally caring and compassionate. However, if you want them to care about others more than themselves then it is essential for parents or caregivers start early with cultivating these traits by instilling the word of God in their lives at an impressionable age through prayer—either individual devotionals or group scripture study sessions can have lasting effects!
Teaching children about God’s love for others on a regular basis is important. Teaching them how to line up their thoughts with His will allow them an opportunity for spiritual growth and maturity which they can build upon as the years go by. We are always teaching kids something new in order that their faith remains strong throughout all aspects of life; let’s start now!
The Bible is full of verses that talk about love. For example, First Corinthians 16:14 says to “Do everything in love!” That same book chapter 13 verse 1 says “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.”
Teaching kids to care about others is the true meaning of love. And when we teach them that, it’s also teaching them how to show their faith in action: ‘”The most excellent way.'”
