Good morning ___school name____.
Wherever you are at the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
Imagine that you are planning a birthday party. Who would you invite?
Of course, you'd want your friends to come because you enjoy being with them. What about the people who don't fit in? What about the people who aren't like you? Jesus chose to be with those who were not like him. He chose to be will ALL kinds of people. People who made good choices and bad choices. People who were sick and lonely.
Jesus chose to be with all people because all people need LOVE and KINDNESS. This is good news for us
When we make mistakes, Jesus wants to give us love and forgiveness too. Always! And that will NEVER change.
So the next time you are planning a birthday party, or thinking of having a friend over, think about the people who might REALLY need you to be like Jesus, because they need someone to show them love and kindness.
And so today, we pray as a family here at –SCHOOL NAME—.
Heavenly Father, during this Holy Week, give us the wisdom to see others who need us to be just like Jesus – thoughtful, caring, kind and respectful to all people.
Open our hearts, Lord, to make new friends here at school/work, and help us to be a good friend to others. Thank you for the gift of today God. Help me to make today a great day!
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
