"I Want to See Jesus!" Week of Biblical Storytelling - Monday

Character: Micah
Theme: Golden Rule
Message: God knows His people. They are about Justice, Compassion and Humility in faith.

Stories by Micah:
Micah has been walking around heaven talking to people. Looking for the common thing between all the people who are here. He asks, "What is your story?" I asked for his favourite story and he told me the story of:

The Good Man: asked Jesus "what must I do to go to Heaven?"
Jesus: "What have you been taught?"
Man: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself."
Jesus: "Well said! Do this and you will live!"
Man: "Who is my neighbour?"
Parable: Good Samaritan - "Who was the Neighbour to the wounded man? Be like him!"
Micah: "Jesus simplified it that much! If you help someone who is hurting, you take a step toward Heaven!"

Micah: "Jesus loved saying, 'Do unto others what you wish they would do to you!"

Conclusion
Micah: "This story and many stories about Jesus surprised me. Why? Because I said something very similar more that 2500 years ago when I was a prophet.”

Song:
He hath shown thee oh man what is good
and what does the Lord require of thee
but to do justly
and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with thy God.

What does it mean?
Do justly: help others. Protect others. Don't let people hurt others.
Love mercy: forgive others. Love others. Be kind at all times.
Walk humbly: respect God and others. Humble yourself. God will lift you up.

Me: Thank you for telling me your story. I have enjoyed meeting you. But I want to see Jesus. Have you seen Him?
Micah: Yes, Jesus is very near. Just before you, he was here!
Me: I really must go! I want to see Jesus! (leave stage)
