That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) Can Help Kids Learn About Putting God First.
Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) to help teach youngsters that we must love God most of all. The inspiration for this lesson was the Gospel of St. Matthew 10:37-42, when Christ prepares the Apostles for their mission by explaining the meaning of discipleship.
In this lesson, Jesus reminds us that His followers must love God more than anyone or anything else, including family members or friends, jobs, money, authority, or even hobbies. We must prime and prioritize our hearts with love for the Lord. Our family is important, and we first learn about love and God through it. But our parents or children cannot love us in the same way as God. We should be careful not to love others to excess while only ably offering God a meager heart. Jesus wants all of His disciples to follow His example and love God most of all. When we know Jesus, we know God the Father. And when we follow Christ and patiently bear our cross next to Him, we show God honor, reverence, and love.
