All Aboard! Jesus loves everyone, and He wants everyone to come aboard and be His friend forever. When we look at the kind of friend Jesus was while He was on earth, we can see that Jesus truly does love everyone. Throughout the Bible, we find accounts of the times that Jesus loved those considered unworthy and wanted to be their friend—no matter what.
At some point, even our precious preschoolers will all find themselves in the shoes of these “unworthy” people. Like Zacchaeus, they will have friends mad at them for a wrong choice. Or, they may not feel like they fit in because of where they’re from much like the woman at the well. But, Jesus loves them anyway—no matter what. That is what we want them to know. That will help them choose grace and to love everyone the way Jesus loves them.
So let’s get ready for an amazing ride together. All Aboard!
Our Bible story for weeones on Sunday was from the book of JOHN 4:1-30 –
Jesus is a friend to a Samaritan woman, even though she is different than Him.
“Love each other as I have loved you.”
JOHN 15:12, NIV
SAY THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF SUNDAY’S STORY:

DO THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF SUNDAY’S STORY:
When you go into your child’s room this month, say, “Good morning! I see someone I love very much. Who do I see?” Grin at your child. “Yes! I see you!” Tickle your child. “Guess who else loves you.” Pause. “Jesus!”
