1 John 4:10-11
This is love not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us we also ought to love one another.
Have you ever wondered what it would mean to be lost in love? This year we will be learning how to be lost in love. There are many ways we can show people our theme in school and in the world.
I can show this theme many ways at school. This theme means to me that I need to show people God’s love. Some ways I can show God’s love in school are, by thinking of others before myself. A lot of times it is so easy to get caught up in your own struggles and forget about others. I can also show people God’s love by saying “Hi” to little kids in the hallways. I remember when I was little I always wanted to be one of the big kids who are “in charge” of school. Finally, I can show God’s love to everyone at school by looking out for people who don’t have as many friends or who don’t have a lunch. I remember one day when I was younger all of my friends were sick and I had no one to play with at recess, in addition to that I also forgot my lunch at home.
As Christians we can show this love to the world. 3 examples of showing love to the world are, by looking out for people who are less fortunate than us. When we go to New York there are a lot of homeless people there, but I know that there are homeless people everywhere. We can also help people by helping them overcome poverty. Even though I was in a really rich part of Guatemala there was still a lot of poverty, for example people lined the streets selling things and begging for money. There was a lot of really poor people. Many people can’t overcome poverty because the good schools cost money and they can’t afford that so they end up going to really bad public schools. Finally, we can also help people in the world by praying for them. Many people don’t think that praying can do much but people prayed for hurricane Irma to not be as bad and it actually happened. God listened to people’s prayers.
