Lent at Work - Bible Passages for Children

  1. Bible Passages for Children
  2. Do everything you possibly can for those who need help. If your neighbor needs something you have, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow.” Give it to him immediately. Give to anyone who asks you for something. Don’t refuse to give to anyone who wants to borrow from you. Give to others, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands—more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you. (Proverbs 3:27- 28, Matthew 5:42, Luke 6:38)
  3. This is the kind of fasting I want: ...Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Then your salvation will come like the dawn, and your wounds will quickly heal. Your godliness will lead you forward, and the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind. Then when you call, the LORD will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply. (Isaiah 58:6-9)
  4. You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. You new life should be like this: Show mercy to others. Be kind, humble, gentle, and patient. Don’t be angry with each other, but forgive each other. If you feel someone has wronged you, forgive them. Forgive others because the Lord forgave you. (1 Peter 2:9, Colossians 3:12-13)
  5. Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven! If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 18:21,22; Matthew 6:14-15)
  6. The LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. (Micah 6:8, Colossians 3: 8, 10)
  7. God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. If we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. Let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. (1 John 1:5,7; Matthew 5:14,16)
