Unit 2, Lesson 4 – Greatest Commandment

The religious leaders of the day continue to try to trick Jesus into showing that they know more about God than he does. This week, they think they’ve got him trapped with a trick question. Out of all God’s rules for humankind, which one is the most important? But Jesus knows the truth that all need to hear.

The greatest commandment is love.

This week’s lesson sheet.

Key lessons:

  • God turns the world upside down
  • The most important of God’s rules for humankind is to love
  • God asks us to put love at the center of all we do

Sunday, October 25 – Greatest Commandment

Community Connection

We can show love in so many ways! One of the ways we can love our neighbor is to remind them that we are grateful to be their neighbor or friend. Surprise your neighbors or friends. You might stick an encouraging card in their mailbox or write a message of love on their driveway with chalk.

With your family, think about someone who might need extra love right now. Give them a call! You can use the church directory to find numbers of older members who might love a call from a young person.
