“God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son.” John 3:16, GNT
“God (point up)
loved (hug yourself)
the world (raise arms overhead to form a circle)
so much (stretch arms out as far as possible)
that He gave (place hands together with palms up in front as if offering something)
His only (point up)
Son.” (hold arms as if cradling and rocking a baby)
John 3:16 (hold hands open like a book)
God's compassion for the people He created led to the greatest act of love the world has ever seen. God sent His only Son to make us right with Him. We reflect that compassion when we care about others and show them how much God loves them.
