When you see a firefly light up, remember that God wants us to share our light with others!

bug: firefly

word:  evangelism

story: Paul and King Agrippa (Acts 25-26)

Bible verse: Be wise (and tell others about Jesus). (Colossians 4:5)

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I know it is important to tell other people about you.  The more I learn about you, the more I have to share with others.  Help me to live in such a way that others want to know more about you!  Amen

Parents
What is something you can you do to “shine your light” with your children? Consider this: sit down and write out your faith story – what Christ means to you. Save it for your child in a scrap book, time capsule, family Bible, or memory box. One day, when your child is older, it will help him understand your personal journey with God.

Birth-Age 2
This is a great time to begin praying for others with your young children. Is there a friend or family member that doesn’t know Jesus?  When you and your child are praying together, pray for him or her.  Help your young one “shine” by caring and praying for others.

Age 3-Kindergartenbackyard_group
Talk to your child about sharing Jesus with others. Ask if they have a friend they would like to invite to Bright Beginnings and then help make it happen! Even very young children want their friends to know about Jesus and his love – do everything you can to help your child “shine”!
