(age 6 to 6th Grade) 


Week 1


We start our discussion about humility in John 13:1-17 where we find Jesus and His disciples celebrating Passover in the upper room. Jesus wanted to give His disciples an example of what it meant to be a servant leader. With humility, Jesus washed His disciples’ feet. He served them by doing the job of a servant.


Bottom Line: I can put others first by serving them. Kids will learn that they don’t need to wash their friends’ feet to show humility, but they can serve them and put them first. We pray this will be a powerful week for kids as they see how much Jesus did for them and how they can respond to Him by how they treat others.


Week 2


In Matthew 26:36-56, we take a look at the very garden where Jesus showed an unbelievable understanding of how important it was to put the will of the Father ahead of His own. Jesus knew why He came to earth. While He prayed for His Father to make another way, ultimately Jesus knew that He had to let go of what He wanted for the sake of saving the world from sin.

Bottom Line: I can put others first by letting go of what I want. At some point in our lives, we’ll be faced with a decision to give up something we want for what someone else wants. For Jesus this was a matter of life and death. While that may not be the case for us, showing humility in these situations is still important. We pray that kids will realize that showing humility is often more important than getting their way.


Week 3


We’re excited to celebrate Easter as we spend time in John 18:12–20:23. We’ll start with Jesus’ trial and end with celebrating the resurrection. The religious leaders are up in arms because Jesus has claimed to be God. Doesn’t matter that it’s TRUE; they’re still ready to dish out the ultimate punishment. And Jesus chose to give up everything and take that punishment, so that no one else has to.


Bottom Line: I can put others first because Jesus put me first. It cost Jesus everything to put us first. He gave up His life, so we could be with God forever. As we respond to God and His gift of salvation, we can follow Jesus’ example and put others first.

 

Week 4


Next, we head to Matthew 28:16-20. Now that Jesus was alive, the disciples would have thought that now it was time for Jesus to become king, but that wasn’t God’s plan. Jesus gave them a new job: go and tell everyone about Jesus and be like Jesus was to the rest of the world.   


Bottom Line: I can put others first by doing what Jesus said. We get to continue the mission that Jesus gave His disciples all those years ago. When we choose to share Jesus’ love with others, we’re putting them first. We pray that kids will realize that they have an important role in God’s One Big Story.

 

Week 5


Finally, we’ll take a closer look at the passage where we find our memory verse. In Philippians 2:3-8, Paul tells us how Jesus is the ultimate example of humility. He gave up everything to come to earth and save us.


Bottom Line: Put others first. We hope that when kids take a look at the people around them, that they will start to understand just how much Jesus loves them, it will change the way we treat them, and they’ll make sure to put them first.
