Before You Listen

After you listen

Memory Verse

“The greatest way to show love for friends is to die for them. And you are my friends, if you obey me.”

Audio Icon   John 15:13-14



In this episode, Scooter is bullied. He tries to talk to his friends and others around him, but they don’t have the time to listen to him. Grandpa reminds him that Jesus is someone who will always listen and will understand. Jesus wants to listen to you, laugh with you, and help when you are worried. And Jesus understands bullying because he was bullied.

You also have adults around you that you can trust. Think of a trusted person God has put in your life. Maybe it is a parent, a teacher, or just someone you know. You should talk to them about any bullying that happens. Keeping bullying a secret will hurt you and help the person who did the harm. Talking about problems, and looking for ways to make things better can improve the relationships with all the people around you.

Want to dig deeper? Read about the bullying Jesus experienced and how he responded in Matthew 4:1-11, Luke 4:14-30 and Luke 14:1-14.


If you are being bullied, it is comforting to tell Jesus. But it is important to tell an adult too.
