Look 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.?
Martin 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.
So 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.
Sample 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.
