All You Need is Love ~ God's Greatest Commandment

There are many important things to remember from the Bible, but Jesus told us that the two most important commandments are to love God and love others. This month children will be learning that all they need to make God happy is love!

Don't let the learning stop at church!

This week we are asking parents to do two things:
  • go over the Bible verse with your child: Matthew 22:40 "All of the law and the writings of the prophets take their meaning from these two commands." Then ask, "And what are these two commands? Love God and love others!" Each time you recite the verse, you will add this question to the end so that they can also memorize the two commands but without having to memorize the entire paragraph.
  • Watch The Greatest Commandment video with them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4WygilFuaI&list=PLE9A572C906CA37E3&index=22&feature=plpp_video
