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:
Think about the last time you forced something to happen because you couldn’t wait. We all have examples of times when waiting would have been the better choice. This week, you have the opportunity to talk to your kids about the importance of waiting. Challenge them to choose patience this week, even when they think they know what’s best. In the long run, patience is ALWAYS the wise choice. Especially when waiting helps you avoid disaster or regret. When you think you can’t wait, think twice.
