Matthew followed Jesus and spread the good news to many people. He was even chosen to write the first book of the New Testament. One thing I think is special about Matthew is that some of the first people he shared the good news with were his friends. They came to meet Jesus when He was eating a meal at Matthew’s house. While your children or your students color this picture of Matthew, help them remember that sharing Jesus with the world is important, but it makes Jesus just as happy when we share Him with the people close to us.
