Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day:
Jesus told this story about a father and son as a way to help his listeners understand the depth and breadth of God’s love. It’s important to note that Jesus told this story to “tax collectors and sinners” while being judged by onlooking “Pharisees and teachers of the law.” (Luke 15:1) Jesus wanted to make the point, very clearly, that no matter what choices we make or how far we stray, God is always waiting to welcome us back with open arms. Imagine a heavenly Father who doesn’t condemn but RUNS to meet us when we turn back to him? You have the opportunity to tell your preschoolers this week that “nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.” (Romans 8:39) God always offers forgiveness. Why? Because [Bottom Line] God loves me.
