Description: Love Your Neighbor as Yourself Scripture Page
Bible Text: Matthew 22:39b
Bible Lesson: Each of us has an inherent love for ourselves. Sometimes this can be “beaten” out of us, but typically we put ourselves first rather naturally. In this important passage, Jesus reminded us that we are to love others (our “neighbor”) as much as we love ourselves. This the essence of sacrificial love and is what gave Jesus the power to endure the cross. It’s a simple truth that children can easily grasp. This scripture poster from Matthew 22:39 can help them remember Jesus’ words. Encourage them to place this on their wall or mirror.
