Hi CLC parents!

Jesus told an incredible story about showing compassion to others. The punchline, though, was the most amazing part. He said that the way we treat others is the way we treat Him! Wise people live compassionate lives because they know that showing compassion to others means showing compassion to Jesus, whereas withholding compassion from others is the same as withholding compassion from Jesus. That’s why this weekend we’re talking about living wisely when it comes to those that need our compassion.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids by clicking on this link: https://store.gocurriculum.com/pages/go-plus-videos?id=3145994174510

It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.


Bible Story: The Book of Proverbs: Compassionate Wisdom

Big Idea: When we show compassion to the poor and suffering, we show compassion to Jesus.

Memory Verse: “Anyone who is kind to poor people lends to the Lord. God will reward him for what he has done.” Proverbs 19:17 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson.


Have you ever experienced compassion? There’s nothing like it. I don’t know what opportunities you have to show compassion this week, but I know they’re there. I hope you’ll take them. How we treat others is how we treat Jesus.

In Him,

Pastor Ashley
