The Virtue Story of Kindness- Tiny Virtue Heroes: Jesus Lost and Found
First, fennel-munching Eli the caterpillar is swept away on a bumpy ride back into bustling Jerusalem in search of a lost boy. Then, he wishes he could tell the boy’s parents that he saw 12-year-old Jesus leave the homeward-bound caravan and run back to the city! After nearly three days searching desperately with his holy companions, Eli and his kind, ever-faithful hero Joseph stumbles onto an important clue. Kindness always pays it forward!
Eli the caterpillar is the tiny virtue hero of KINDNESS. To clarify, he invites readers to admire the kind ways of his hero, Joseph.
When we ask God to guide what we think and pray, do and say, we enable holy habits like KINDNESS to grow virtue-strong in us. Joseph shows us that God places the power of heroic kindness inside each of us. Therefore, seeking Jesus and His goodness gives us virtue strength, and enables us to be Virtue Heroes!
Jesus Lost and Found is part of Cathy Gilmore’s Tiny Virtue Heroes storybook series.
