“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” – Ephesians 4:32
Here’s another video resource for you. Veggie Tales often offers books and videos that focus on character development. Veggie Tales: Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler presents a message about kindness in a fun and engaging way. (affiliate link) Many think the golden rule is just something that has been passed down through the ages rather than recognizing that it is a teaching of Jesus found in Matthew 7:12 – “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” This is the reason it’s so important to teach kindness to our kids. Not only does it make our world a better place when people choose kindness, but it also is a direct command from God.
