Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 4: Loving others 
Notes
Ida went to Ikumbya and taught a lesson about Loving others. She told a story of Jesus Christ loving every one. Ida continued that as we are soon celebrating Christs birth, let everyone try hard to follow in his foot steps. Jesus came down from heaven with all his glory he chose to come down to our level, that man should understand the will of God. He is the richest because every thing belongs to him but he never bragged about what he had. He loved and showed mercy to those who were oppressed. He loved the women who were taken to be nothing in the community.He loved children who were also neglected. Jesus did all this to show us the right way to live with others in harmony. During this time of waiting for the new born king, Ida encouraged the community to help those who need our help, to show mercy to the oppressed, love and forgive those who do bad things to us. Jesus had the right to kill and destroy or send his killers to hell but in stead forgave them because of the love he had for them. During this Christmas season,Ida encouraged them to do something good . Just as our Lord gave the live example and be examples to other communities. Ida read a scripture from the Gospel of Mathew which says " What's so ever you do to the least of my brothers,that you do unto me". And they sang a song in line with the verse; ' when I was hungry you gave me to eat,when I was thirsty you gave me to drink and when I was naked you clothed me" " So now enter into the home of my father " After this scripture and song the community decided to contribute 2000 shillings each person in the Christmas saving scheme and collected 96000 shillings to help the orphans whose mother was murdered by their father.
