November Lesson – Follow in his Footsteps

Did you know that there are two different ways you can follow in someone’s steps? One way is to walk behind the person and follow where he is going.

Another way to follow in someone’s steps is to be like them, to act like them, or do what they have done, or to follow their example.

 

You can’t walk behind Jesus and follow in his steps. But you can follow in his steps by being like him.

People made fun of Jesus and called him mean names, but he didn’t call them names back. He kept his mouth closed. He only said good things to people. He listened, he helped people, he shared what he had, and he was kind, and forgiving.  He taught us many lessons about how we should treat others.  We can follow him by acting like him.  Think about what you can do to follow Jesus.
