Table Talk: Creation Part 2

This Week's Table Talk: 
Creation Part 2


Message

Last week Lightgliders everywhere learned that they were created by God. The implication of this truth is that there is purpose for their lives.  This week we want kids to know that they were also not only created by God, but they were created in the image of God.  Because of this all-important truth, every human being has an inherent dignity and is worthy of respect.  Therefore, Lightgliders are to live with respect for themselves and for others.

Verse

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

~Genesis 1:27 (NLT)

Meaningful Conversation Starters
  • What does the word respect mean?
  • What are some ways that you reflect the image of God?
  • What are ways to show respect to yourself and to those around you?

Videos to Watch With Your Kids
These videos will be located on the front page of your child's Lightglider account this week.  

Spark Video: The Goal to Respect
It is the goal of a Lightglider to treat others with respect. This is not always easy, especially when people are unkind. However, if we choose to honor the image of God that every person reflects, we can find a way to show respect.

Prayer Video: Love is Patient and Kind
To better understand how to love others well, it is helpful to know what love looks like in action. Choosing to show patience and kindness in the midst of busyness or even rudeness is a way to show love. And we need to ask for God's help with this!
