If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. I Corinthians 12:26
Flora and Brandt like to run and play.
They jump and flip in the sun all day.
They learn about God when they go to church.
They even compete in a game called The Bible Search.
Flora found 20 verses and Brandt found 5 more
But Maddie won the game when she found 34.
They also played a Bible memory game
To see how many books of the Bible they could name.
Flora could name them all, but Brandt forgot a few.
Flora won a ribbon, but Brandt did too.
Instead of getting angry when his friends won,
Brandt gladly participated in their celebrations.
He won a prize for the joy he showed for his friends.
His prize was the “1 Corinthians 12:26” pin.
As a member of Christ’s family, we share many things with each other. Did you know that we are also to share in others’ joy. 1 Corinthians 12:26 teaches us to be glad when our family and friends are celebrated. We show love when we celebrate with them.
How do you feel when you lose a game? What can you do to be a good winner or loser?
