BIBLE STORY: Secret Service (Give in Secret) • Matthew 6:1-4
BOTTOM LINE: Serve others without looking for applause.
MEMORY VERSE: Jesus sat down and called for the 12 disciples to come to him. Then he said, "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last. They must be the servant of everyone." Mark 9:35 (NIRV)
LIFE APP: Service - Lending a hand to help someone else.
BASIC TRUTH: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
TALK IT OVER QUESTIONS:
- How does Jesus want us to respond when we do good things? (He doesn’t want us to brag)
- Why does Jesus say that it is important to not brag about good deeds? (It gives more glory to God)
- Who will reward you for doing good things and doing God’s work? (God will reward you, even if other people don’t know about it)
- How can you give to people who are in need?
