  Dear Young Ones, Calvary greetings to you my dear children in the precious name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This is another year for zealous works and more creative activities for you to grow in faith through the knowledge of God’s love and to become like Jesus in every way.  

TEXT: Luke 19:19-31

MEMORY VERSE: Deuteronomy 15:11 “For the poor shall never cease out of the land.”

1. To let the children know that God wants us to help the poor.
2. To let the children know that there would always be poor people.

God expects the rich to help the poor.

God is the creator of the rich and the poor. God cares for all God expects the rich to help
the poor. How many of you have seen a poor beggar before? Even little children go about
begging? Should we laugh at the poor? No we should help them.

1. There was a certain rich man and also there was a certain beggar named Lazarus. Luke
2. The rich man did not help Lazarus, who was full of sores and the dog licked his
sores. Luke 16:21.
3. And so it was that the beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s
bossom, the rich man also died and was taken to hell. Luke 16:22-23a.
4. The rich man saw Lazarus a far off where he was in Abraham’s bosom, he cried for
water to cool his tongue but there was no help in hell. Luke 16:24.
5. Father Abraham told the rich man that during his lifetime he received good things
and Lazarus evil things, but now he is comforted and you are tormented.
6. The rich man was also told that there was a great gulf fixed, so that those who want
to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from where he was pass to them.

The rich man did not go to hell because of his wealth but because he was selfish with it. He
refused to feed Lazarus, take him in, or care for his health. He was hardhearted in spirit of his
great blessings. The amount of money we have is not as important as the way we use it. What
is your attitude toward your money and possessions? Do you hoard them selfishly for yourself,
or do you use them to help others?

If we don’t help the poor it would be counted as sin against us and one would end up in hell
like the rich man.

Help the poor with the blessings God has given to you.

God gives us riches and wealth so that we can help the poor around us. We must not be
selfish with what we have.

When Jesus is in our life we would not be hardhearted like the rich man. Because of the love
of God in us, we would want to help the poor. Have you received Jesus in your life? He is the
one who can give you the grace to help the poor.

1. Why did the rich man go to hell? He went to hell because he was selfish with his wealth.
He refused to feed Lazarus, take him in, or care for his health. He was hardhearted
in spite of his great blessings.
2. From this lesson what does God expect from you? God expects me to help the poor.

There was a poor boy in your class how can you help him?
If I have two biscuits I can give him one, I can share my lunch with him, I can give him a
pencil and I can allow him to use my textbooks. Let the children respond.
