Foundations in Leadership 1.10 For South Columbia Baptist Church

This is handout 1.10, Leadership And The Follower Who Offers The Most Blessing, in Foundations to Leadership. I wrote it to help develop the Youth Leaders (LITs) in our Awana Club. This hand-out and others like it are given the the kids at the end of club to take home and review during the week. They write out answers to the questions which they then discuss with a mentor, and return to club. I do not object to it being copied and used.

Leadership And The Follower Who Offers The Most Blessing.

If Jesus came to our club how would you treat him? What would you do?

From Matthew 24:31-46. (read this passage), we read how Jesus identifies himself with the needy, “Then the righteous will answer him. ’Lord when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you’ The king will reply, ’I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” Verses 37- 40. NIV.

Why did Jesus say if you have done the service to needy people it is like you’ve done it to him?

Why did Jesus call the homeless, hungry, thirsty, sick, and people in prison his brothers?

Why is it important to show extraordinary love and compassion to the needy?

Other than the ones listed in the verses who else is needy? What other types of needs are there?

Can you identify the needy ones in your circle of influence?

How can you serve with extraordinary love and compassion the needs of those you know?

Why do you think God has brought the needy persons to your circle of influence?

In the Kingdom of God the paradox is that the poor are rich and the wise are fools, (We can think of other examples). Why are the neediest the source of the greatest blessings?
