No making fun!
In a Bible story, there was a man named Jairus (see Mark 5:22–24, 35–43). He was a daddy and his daughter was sick. So he went to find Christ Jesus and asked him to come to his house and heal his daughter. As they traveled together, Jesus healed another person along the way. Soon, news came from Jairus’ household. Jesus was told that Jairus’ daughter had died, and so he shouldn’t bother coming. But Jesus told the daddy not to be afraid and went with him to his house anyway.
When they got to the house, Jesus said to the people there that the little girl was not dead. When he said that, people laughed at Jesus. Jesus wasn’t distracted by others laughing at him, though. He knew that Life, God, was the only power; so, for the little girl’s sake, he made them leave the room, and he told the little girl to get up. She sat up and was healed!
