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:
Kindness matters. It matters because it shows others they are important to you. But what about the people around you that tend to be overlooked? The new kid. The shy kid. The smallest or the weakest kid. The last kid picked for the team. Kindness doesn’t discriminate. God calls us to be kind to everyone. Tall, short, smart, slow, talented, average, quiet, loud – EVERYONE. Because every person is made by God and each one is valuable to Him. So the challenge this week is to remember how it feels to receive unexpected kindness and to look for ways to spread that kindness around – especially to those who are overlooked.
