The Narrative of Jesus’ Life
The below teaching occurs after Jesus has committed to going to Jerusalem, even though he knows it will cost him his life.
Reading from the Gospel
Matthew 18:1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (ESV)
Sharing your Faith
- How do children model humility?
- In what ways does society elevate self-centeredness or self-promotion over humility?
- Share about someone you consider a good example of humility and grace.
Pray for One Another
Each person is invited to share a prayer request. Another participant will volunteer to offer the petition. Once everyone has chosen a prayer request, take turns offering the prayers aloud.
