"But I say unto you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.: Matthew 5:44
This is a great in-class activity to have an application lesson for this verse. Before class, the teacher cuts out the wreath from cheap paper plates. Also tape the yarn for the hanger. Die-cut enough hearts (or other shape) so that each child’s wreath is full. (For Ellison die-cut, each child gets 5 hearts.) Write the words for the verse on one heart for each child.
In class, discuss verse and how as kids you can love your enemies. Record their responses on a chart. On the other 4 hearts, kids write their responses. Glue all the hearts onto the wreath.
