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:
God’s story–of love and forgiveness and redemption–is for everyone! How do we know that with certainty? Because God chose to announce the birth of his one and only son to a bunch of everyday, average shepherds. They weren’t famous or well connected. They didn’t have any political influence or power. It’s a great reminder to us that no matter who you are, or where you’ve been or what you have or have not done, Jesus came for you too. He came for every child in your ministry. What GOOD news that is for all of us. I can have joy because God’s story is for everyone.
