at the children and say something like, "Wow, you all look different.
None of you look exactly the same. Did you know that?"
And that reminds of the holiday coming up. Does anyone know what the next holiday is? (Martin Luther King Jr. Day.)
Does anyone know anything about Martin Luther King Jr.?
Luther King was a pastor who knew that God made everyone to look
different because God likes it when people look different. It makes
people special and unique when everyone looks a little bit different
from everyone else.
That means that God likes it when we have different hair colors and eye colors and skin colors.
And because God likes it when we look different, He loves and cares about everyone just the same as everyone else.
Martin Luther King said that if God loves and cares about everyone just
the same, then we should love and treat everyone just the same too, no
matter what they look like and even if they look different than we do
because God likes it when everyone looks different.
Let's pray about that.
prayer: God, we thank You creating all of us and making us all look a
little bit different from everyone else. We pray that You will help us
to love and treat everyone the same just like You love and treat
everyone the same, no matter what they look like. Amen.
