God Helps Us Comfort Others - Hands-On Faith - Week of February 24, 2014

Hands-on Faith for Families– week of February 24, 2014
Theme: God's Comfort
God Helps Us Comfort Others

Play: Say an injury (cut finger, etc.) while tapping your knees twice. The next person says a way to make the injured person feel better (get a Band-Aid) while clapping hands twice. Then that person begins with a different injury. Keep it up until someone breaks the rhythm.

Talk: Everybody gets hurt from time to time. When we scrape a kneeor cut a finger, a bandage and a hug can help comfort us. But sometimes it’s our heart that hurts, not our body. Maybe a friend was unkind or the school day was rough. When that happens, we can talk to God about our troubles, and He will comfort us and help our hearts heal. Then when others have sad times, God helps us comfort them with the same comfort He has given us (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). How can you help your friends when their hearts are hurting?

Pray: Ask God to help you comfort others when their hearts are hurting in the same way He has comforted you.
