Let us love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love, does not know God, because God is love. (If we love each other with the same love with which we love God, it means that we are keeping the entire law of God.)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. (Unselfish love is a love that is prepared to forgive and forget, a love that always puts others first.)
This kind of love never comes naturally because every person is sinful and selfish in nature. It is very difficult for us to love like God does. But we owe each other this love. Through Jesus and his holy spirit it is possible for you to do this. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and teach you to love your brothers and sisters around the world.
Love must be genuine and sincere. A love that puts others first so that our own interest are less important. Only when you start loving God, you suddenly realize that you yourself is not so important, then you suddenly find yourself free to love and respect other people in the way God requires of you.

Q. Unselfish love is a love that is prepared to forgive and .....?

With each Sunday school lesson, I try to give the kids special verses, activities and pictures to color in. Below you will find the download links for the special verse of the day and more. Please feel free to use them as you like for personal use in your own Sunday school classes. The wording and any images on this website are not to be sold or reproduced in any publications online or offline. I drew these pictures so that you could add your own verses to them for the day. Color the edgings with marker pens and a little bit of glitter. You can hand them out to the children to take home as bible verses for the day, even better if each child has a separate book, they can paste it into their own book.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
1 John 4:8
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 John 4:19 - We love him, because he first loved us.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Whenever I need to do Gods work, I set myself aside and ask God for his Holy Spirit to take control for I know that I can do all things through Him, my Lord and Savior for He will guide me to learn to love and to keep in His ways. He has never failed me, He is always there. Teaching me to love my sisters and brothers in the body of Christ. May we experience how wide, how long, how high, how deep His love really is? We will never really fully understand God's love. But we can only try to do our best for God knows our hearts.
Self-seeking - Thinking of oneself firstly before thinking of others.
Genuine - Being real or speaking the truth.
Sincere. - Being truthful and honest.

Dear Sunday school partners, all around the world. Please refer to your Bible and compare to see if you agree with our children Sunday school lessons.
The stories are not word for word out of the Bible, they are created from my own thoughts. I am only human, so please check the stories out first before using them.
These stories are based on easy words for children to understand, and my own thoughts. You are welcome to use your Bible to add or take away. At the bottom, there is space for you to give input and comments on the subjects. You are all welcome. We are there to make a difference in a child’s life so please come and let us work together for God’s kingdom.
