Valentine Lesson about God’s Love
My husband sometimes has the habit of telling me the same stories over and over again. I love him, but listening to the same thing again is not my favorite. Sometimes, lessons from the Bible can feel the same way. “Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard that before.” So how do you make something “old” feel “new” again? Insert object lesson.
What you need:
a cup with a small amount of water
First draw a heart towards the bottom of the paper towel. Talk about how without God, our hearts are empty.
Then fill in the heart with red marker. Talk about how, when we accept Jesus into our hearts, He fills us.
Then draw some hearts above the first heart. Talk about how there are other hearts in the world, in need of love. Talk about how God wants us to share the love He gave us with others.
As the water is absorbed, you should see the red marker shifting up to the other hearts, filling them. Talk about how we can share love. Mention some practical ways, but emphasize that it must be through being saturated with God, not of our own strength.
