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:
It’s difficult to keep going when things get hard. When you’re in the trenches and the job just seems to be insurmountable, it’s tempting to throw in the towel. And this doesn’t apply to just the “stuff” we have to do. This also applies to the way God has called us to live. It’s a big job to forgive and to love others the way Jesus loves us. But there is good news when it comes to determination. God’s love is bigger and stronger than anything you can imagine. And with God on your side, you can keep on loving and forgiving because he is with you. So keep going even when the job is bigger than you think.
