Table Talk: Motivated By Love

This Week In Lightgliders: 

We are beginning a new 3-week unit in Lightgliders learning about the importance and power of "The Cross." The theme verses are found in Matthew 20:17-19.

As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside privately and told them what was going to happen to him...."they will hand him over to the Romans to be mocked, flogged with a whip, and crucified. But on the third day he will be raised from the dead." 

Motivated By Love

In our cultural and political climate today, kids are seeing anger and discord be motivators for change. We want kids to be motivated by love and not hate.  Hate motivates destruction, while love motivates restoration, selflessness and other courageous actions. The cross was motivated by God's love for us!

What is important is faith expressing itself in love.
~Galatians 5:6b (NLT)

Meaningful Conversation Starters
  • What are you motivated by?
  • How can we become motivated by love?
  • Why is the cross the greatest example of love?

Videos to Watch With Your Kids

Only love can produce loving outcomes. Love motivates all the goals of a Lightglider.

We live in a world with a lot of brokenness and hurt. We know God will restore it all one day, but until then we seek His help and justice.
