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:
This month, we’ll finish out our study on the fruit of the Spirit starting out with goodness. Our verse for this week’s Bible story from James reminds us that every good and perfect gift comes from God. To show God’s goodness to others, we have to be connected to Him. We cannot be “good” in our own strength. But through a relationship with Jesus, we have access to the Holy Spirit, our helper, who can power up the goodness in us so we can change the world around us. As you prepare to lead your few this week, ask God to help you notice small ways you can [Bottom Line] show God’s goodness to others.
