Meal 5: Have you ever been to a party and had a really bad seat?
In this video, Jesus went to a party where everyone thought they should have the best seat. The Pharisees set a trap for Jesus and invited a sick man to his party.
But Jesus wasn't surprised. He was kind to the sick man who needed help and healed him on the Sabbath. Then Jesus told a story to show that following God is about loving people and loving God, not about being selfish and making sure you look good.
Jesus put everyone first when he died for them on the cross.
Suitable for children aged 5-11 years old.
