ImageBug this week:  Butterfly

Word of the week: Discipleship

Verse of the week: Your attitude should be like Jesus. (Philippians 2:5)

Story: Matthew 4:21, 17:5, Mark 3:17, 5:37, 14:33 & John 21:1-2

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I understand that You made me.  Help me to become more like You.  Amen

In an amazing process, the caterpillar changes to a butterfly!  Much like this, we change from our old life to a new one as we trust Jesus and follow him.monarch-linsuehoo

Kids can understand that when a caterpillar goes into his cocoon, he turns into a beautiful butterfly; and that when we spend time learning about Jesus and reading the Bible, we can become more like Him.

How can we take this message home all week long? Read and pray. Find ways to pray all day long.  You can talk to God when

  • your child falls down or gets hurt
  • you get in the car to drive to daycare
  • you sit down to eat a meal

Make a point to read a Bible story every day this week.  Let your children interact with the pictures and characters – talk about who they are and what is happening. There are some wonderful preschool Bibles – make a special purchase this week if you don’t already have one on your shelf:

  • The Early Readers Bible (Gold n’ Honey Books)
  • The Right Choices (McDowell)
  • My First Study Bible (Thomas Nelson)
  • The Beginner’s Bible (Zonderkids)

Read and pray this week!  Grow with your child – from caterpillar to butterfly as you learn more about Jesus and trust in Him!
