Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
You know what’s gross? Stinky feet! But in Jesus’ day, with all the walking and sandal wearing and unpaved roads, feet were even yuckier than today. At that last supper with his disciples, Jesus chose to do the job of the lowliest servant telling his followers: “You should do as I have done. ”Jesus was the ultimate example of humility. And guess what? By choosing to show up every week to lead your group of kids, you are following Jesus’ command. Thank you for putting others first by serving them. You are making an eternal difference in the lives of your kids. Even the ones with stinky feet!
