Helping / being helpful in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Being helpful is a core value that is emphasized throughout the Bible. The Bible teaches us to love and serve others, and to use our resources and abilities to help those in need. Whether it's through acts of kindness, volunteering, or supporting those who are less fortunate, the Bible encourages us to be active in helping others.

One of the most famous examples of being helpful in the Bible can be found in the story of the Good Samaritan, where a man from a despised group of people stops to help a stranger in need, despite the danger it posed to himself. This story teaches us about the importance of putting aside our differences and showing compassion and kindness to others, no matter who they are.

As children's workers, it is important to teach children about the value of being helpful, and to help them understand that they can make a positive impact in the world through small acts of kindness and generosity. By teaching children about biblical stories and teachings on being helpful, we can inspire them to become more compassionate and giving, and to use their resources and abilities to help others.
