Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day:
While it is true that [Bottom Line] God’s way is perfect that doesn’t mean that God’s way is easy. Naaman didn’t want to do what God asked. He wanted Elisha to heal him and just to done with it. But that wasn’t God’s plan. Choosing to be kind to someone who isn’t kind to you isn’t easy. Using honest words even when you’d rather fudge the truth so you don’t get in trouble isn’t easy either. But God promises that when we choose to follow Him, He will be with us. Following Him and His way is always the best choice. As you prepare to lead your preschoolers this week, ask God to show you HIS way this week and to give you the courage and strength to follow His way because it is perfect.
As your leaders prepare to leave, ask them the key question and say the bottom line together.
