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:
At first glance the story of Mary and Martha seems a bit unfair. After all, Martha just wanted things to be nice for Jesus. But in the midst of her busyness, she forgot the most important thing. Jesus doesn’t want us to stay so busy doing good things for him that we miss the most important thing – spending time WITH him. As you prepare for this week, thank God for the opportunity to lead preschoolers to know Him. Open His word and read this story for yourself. Pray and ask God to show you how to love others the way He does. And thank him for the children you get to love on each week. Jesus wants to spend time with you because He loves you so. Who loves you? [Bottom Line] Jesus loves me.
