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:
This month, we’re talking about love: choosing to treat others the way you want to be treated! Did you notice that verb there at the beginning of the definition? Love isn’t a feeling. It’s an action, a choice. And why should we choose to love? Because of Jesus. Jesus chose to go all the way to the cross to prove his love for us. We don’t love others because they’ve somehow earned or deserve it. We don’t love because we feel like it. Let’s teach our kids this week that you choose to [Bottom Line] love others because Jesus loves you.
