Lesson Goal:
To teach children that we are all God’s children. Because of this, we should love God as our Father and each other as family.


Opening Prayer:
Dear God, today we are going to look at two brothers who got into a bad fight. Thank You that, with Jesus’ help, we can love our friends and family with our whole hearts, just like You love us! We pray these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
