That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 12th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) Can Help Kids Learn About God's Love.
Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 12th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) to help teach youngsters that we are precious to God. The inspiration for this lesson was the Gospel of St. Matthew 10:26-33 when Christ prepares the Apostles for their mission of preaching and healing in the towns nearby.
In today's Gospel, Jesus prepares the Apostles for their mission. The group is anxious. So, Christ encourages them to shed their fear of being physically harmed, noting that they should only be scared of destroying their soul by falling into sin. Ultimately, Christ wants their mission to be successful. The Apostles must not lose faith or let their fear get in the way of preaching or healing. Christ combats their angst by reminding them of God's love, care, and power. His Father knows everything and looks after even the most minor things—like the sparrows. If God cares for the birds, how much more will He watch over us? We are so valuable to Him that He has counted all the hairs on our heads! Like the Apostles, we too are so precious to God, and He loves us very much.
