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 most awe-inspiring part of God’s creation. Maybe you’re picturing a vast blue-green ocean with crashing waves, or maybe the view from a mountaintop, looking out over a valley with a gorgeous sunset. Maybe you’re seeing a sky full of stars with galaxies far beyond comprehension. God made it ALL. But of all the things He made, only people – you and me – were made in His image. Out of all those jaw dropping, odd and amazing things, you are most like Him. As you prepare to introduce your kids t.o the life app of individuality, ask God to help you understand who YOU are. He made you. He loves you. There is no one else who can do what you were created to do. [Bottom Line] God made you in His image.
