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:
We throw the word “love” around pretty casually. But you know that loving birthday cake isn’t the same as loving your best friend. Or your co-worker. Or your younger brother. Loving stuff is WAY easier than loving people. But there’s really good news. God doesn’t ask us to love others in our own strength. He’s shown us how in the way that He loves us. And when we struggle to love others the way He loves, that’s when His Spirit in us can power up our love-ability. Let’s help our kids see this week that real love, the kind of love that makes the biggest difference, is possible with God’s help. You can [Bottom Line] love others because God loves you.
