Getting left out isn’t a new thing at all. It was happening to people way back in Jesus’s day, and it’s what today’s lesson is all about.

Key Points:

  • Lepers had a disease that made them feel left out. Leviticus 13:45-46
  • One leper was desperate enough to walk up to Jesus. Matthew 8:1-2
  • Jesus was willing to touch the leper. Matthew 8:3
  • Jesus cares about everyone, especially people who feel left out.

Memory Verse:

Matthew 8:3 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.
