Love Your Enemies
Jenn Bell has been teaching the 6th grade Sunday School class while Marsha Peth does Everyday Faith this semester. I’m so thankful for Jenn’s willingness to love on the kids in our 6th grade class. They’ve been working through the Fruits of the Spirit as a class. For Love, one of the opening activities had them create a list of the baddest bad guys around. They came up with:
- The Devil
- Jason (From Friday the 13th, Not their DCE)
- Freddy (Nightmare on Elm Street)
- Chucky (From Child’s Play, not Pastor Whited)
- Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)
- Ursula (Little Mermaid)
- Cruella DeVille (101 Dalmations)
- Wicked Witch of the West
- Dr. Evil (Austin Powers)
- Sid the Kid (Toy Story)
Afterwards, they looked at what the Bible says about loving your enemies. A tough list to love! I’m reminded again that God’s plan is so foreign to our own thinking. What a radical concept that must have been for the people, just as it is for us today!
A big thanks to Jenn for showing love to our kids and bringing God’s Word to them!
