Bible (pg 345)
Popsicle stick people
Act out the story with Popsicle stick people:
One day, a man came to Jesus and asked him a question. He said, "Jesus, you are always talking about loving people. What do you mean? How do we love people?"
Jesus decided to tell the man a story. He said, "One day, a man was walking down the road. Then some bad guys came and beat him up and took all his money.
They threw him on the ground and left him to die. Another man walked down the road. He was a priest. He served God.
He saw the man lying on the road, bleeding. The priest did not want to help the man. He did not want to get dirty. So he walked past the man and did not help him.
Then another man walked down the road. He was a Levite. He worked at the temple to serve God.
He saw the man lying there but he was too scared to help him. He did not want the bad men to come back and beat him up too. So he did not help the man.
Then another man walked down the road. He was called a Samaritan.
He saw the man bleeding and he was sad. So he cleaned off the blood and gave him some medicine (show picture in Bible). The Samaritan put the hurt man on his donkey and took him to a nearby town. Then he paid someone to take care of the man until he was better."
Jesus was done telling his story. He said, "The priest did not love the hurt man. The Levite did not love the hurt man. The Samaritan loved the hurt man. Love people like the Samaritan did. Help people like the Samaritan did."

The words of this story were copied from some preschool Bible flashcards that belong to my mom (copyright by CRC Publications 1988...this
is the only info I have on the cards. I'm not sure where they
originally came from). I am posting this for Sunday School and
purposes only and I do not claim myself as the author of these stories.
