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:
What was your biggest act of disobedience as a kid? Can you remember what happened? Don’t worry, you won’t have to share this memory with anyone else. When you chose to go against what your mom or dad or teacher or coach had asked of you, was it because you thought you knew better? This isn’t anything new. In fact, it goes back to the very first two people on earth. Adam and Eve thought they knew better. And because of their disobedience, we became separated from a holy and perfect God. But there is good news! God put a plan in motion to save us from our own disobedience. God sent his one and only son to fix the brokenness we couldn’t fix on our own. As you sit down with your few this week, remind them that following God is always the wise choice. Because He sees and knows all, we trust that His way is always best. That’s why we can trust and obey, even when you think your way is better.
