Hi there, the world is shocked due to this pandemic and people are dying and the doctors are trying to find the vaccine, people sitting in their house have only one work to do, to help. The thing I am telling you was once told by Lord Jesus. Let me tell it to you.

Jesus wanted to help people. He often told them stories. One day Jesus told this story: A man was going down the road. Some people stopped him. They tore his clothes and hurt him. They left him on the side of the road. Three people walked by the hurt man. But only one stopped to help. He bandaged the man’s cuts and took him to a hotel to rest. “Who do you think was kind?” Jesus asked the man to listen to His story. The man answered, “The one who stopped to help.” BIBLE PHRASE: “Jesus told stories to help people learn.” Matthew 13:34 One’s & Two’s: Jesus’ Story About a Kind Man - Luke 10:25-37 Bible Story for 1s One day Jesus told a man this story: A man was lying on the road. He was hurt. He needed help. Three people walked by the hurt man, but only one stopped to help him. “Who was kind?” Jesus asked the man to listen to His story. The man answered, “The one who stopped to help.” Bible Story for 2s Jesus wanted to help people learn. He often told them stories. One day Jesus told this story to a man: A man was traveling down the road. Some people stopped him. Three people walked by the hurt man. But only one stopped to help. He bandaged the man’s cuts and took him to a hotel to rest. “Who do you think was kind?” Jesus asked the man to listen to His story. The man answered, “The one who stopped to help.” “Go and be kind to others, too,” Jesus told the man. BIBLE PHRASE: “Jesus told stories to help people learn.” Matthew 13:34 Three’s thru Pre-K: Jesus Told About a Kind Man – Luke 10:25-37 One day Jesus told a story about being kind. “A man was traveling down the road. Some robbers hurt the man and took everything he had. They left the hurt man lying beside the road. A man came down the road. When he saw the hurt man, he moved to the other side of the road and kept walking. Another man came down the road. He did not stop to help the hurt man either. He moved to the other side of the road and kept walking. Then a kind man came down the road. He saw the hurt man and wanted to help. The kind man put medicine and bandages on the man’s hurt places. The kind man put the hurt man on his donkey. The kind man took him to an inn (a hotel) and took care of him all night. The next day the kind man gave the innkeeper some money to take care of the hurt man until he was well again.” After the story, Jesus asked, “Which of the three men was kind to the hurt man?” The man listening to the story said, “The one who helped the hurt man.” Jesus said, “Go and be kind to others, too.” BIBLE PHRASE: “Love other people and be kind.” Luke 6:27 Kindergarten: Jesus Taught About Being Kind – Luke 10:25-37 Jesus and a man was talking about God’s law. The law said to love God and love your neighbor. The man asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus told a parable (story) to answer the question. A man was walking from Jerusalem to Jericho. As he walked, some robbers stopped him. They took his clothes, beat him, and left him lying beside the road. The hurt man heard someone walking down the road. A priest (church helper) came along. He aw the hurt man lying beside the road, but he walked to the other side of the road and id not stop to help. A Levite (church leader) came walking down the road. He saw the hurt man, but he did not stop to help either. The hurt man heard a man and his donkey coming down the road. They were from Samaria. The Samaritan saw the hurt man beside the road. He knelt, poured olive oil on the man’s wounds, and bandaged them. Then he lifted the hurt man onto his donkey, took him to an inn, and cared for him all night. The next morning, the kind Samaritan gave the owner of the inn two silver coins. “Take care of this man,” he said. “When I come back, I will pay you more money.” After the story, Jesus asked, “Which of the three men treated the hurt man like a neighbor?” He answered, “The man who was kind.” Jesus said, “Go and do the same.”

Not ending right now. Let me tell you an incident with me when I had gone out to the market to buy necessities.

I noticed that an elder woman was struggling to find a suitable place to rest her husband's wheelchair and sit beside him got up, moved his chair, and offered his spot. And then his wife offered her chair to the woman.

I was so moved that I gave him a Peace dove in appreciation for his kindness.

He seemed a little embarrassed, but accepted my thanks, saying, "Well, we all need some extra kindness now and then!" and put the dove in his jean pocket.

I'm smiling still.

There are so many instances of these magical moments, my kind friends, and they are so more often than not. Take notice and appreciate it. It so brings more kindness into being!

Wow! It is quite impressive that you are ten and you can write this well. I'm thirteen and I doubt if I wrote as good as you do. I liked the Bible reference (honestly, how can there be better stories than Bible stories?) and your own experience. I see that the story and the descriptions are amazing, so all you've got to do is to work on your structure. Remember that we are telling the story and we always have to consider: "What can I do to help the readers read the story comfortably? " Remember to form the new paragraph whenever the ...
