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:
The prophets Isaiah and Micah told of Jesus’ birth hundreds of years before He made his debut. Jesus wouldn’t appear as a conquering hero or powerful king. This promised Messiah arrived as a small defenseless baby proving that when God makes a promise, He keeps it. Even when it seems like He’s not working. Even when that promise isn’t fulfilled in the way we would choose or expect. [Bottom Line] You can have joy because God keeps his promises.
