“Yertle the Turtle and King Jesus”
What do you think it would be like to be king or queen?
What was the King Turtle’s problem?
What did he get wrong?
What did he forget? How did the others feel?
Was Jesus a king?
What kind of king was he?
What was he like as a king?
What did Jesus say about being “in charge”?
“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,” (Matthew 20:26 NIV11)
How did Jesus become a king?
“They twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said.” (Matthew 27:29 NIV11)
We love Jesus because he is a king who died so we could live.
We follow him because he is a king who serves us.
His example inspires us to serve one another, to die to ourselves for the sake of others.
