Memory Verse

“Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience”

Audio Icon   Colossians 3:12



What makes a person unhappy and mean? In this episode, that's what happened with Johnny. He lost his pet bird, and it made him an angry boy and a bitter man. He was angry with God, and this caused him to be angry and impatient with other people too.

When bad things happen, you first might be angry or bitter. It doesn't have to be that way. Train yourself in the Spirit so that you show your trust in God's goodness. Let God shine through you. Know and believe that God dearly loves you and show others that love of God. Then you reflect his image to the world around you.

Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” What a powerful statement! God made us like himself. Be a reflection of what God is like!

Want to dig deeper and learn more about image reflecting? Read Ephesians 4:24 and Galatians 2:20


Draw or print out a picture of a mirror. Think about what people see when God is reflected in your life.

For example:

  • Waiting cheerfully in line.
  • Saying hello and smiling to people in school.
  • Smiling when we work together with someone who is not our favourite person.

On the “glass” portion, write your ideas. Then write out the verse from Colossians 3:12 on the handle. Display on your fridge as a reminder to be an image-reflector!
