Bible Verse
Be still and know that I am God. Proverbs 46:10

Jesus Stopped to Visit
In a village that Jesus and his Disciples came to, a woman opened her home to them. As Jesus sat and talked, Martha was busy in the kitchen while her sister Mary sat and listened to every word Jesus was saying. Martha wanted some help, so she asked Jesus to tell Mary to come to the kitchen and help her. He had an interesting response! Read the story in Luke 10:38-42.

Prayer
Jesus, I pray that I will not be too busy that I don’t take time to focus on You. Help me to take time everyday to pray and talk to You. I am so glad that I can go to church to listen to Bible stories and learn about You! Amen.

Parents – Are we too busy?
God is never too busy for us. Are we ever too busy for him? This stage of life is naturally busy, which is why we must be intentional about spending time with God. Giving him our time will help us prioritize our never-ending list of things to do! Commit to giving God some time each day this week.

Birth – Age 2 – Read the Bible
Spend time reading to your child out of a children’s Bible every day this week. If you don’t have one, see Pastor Ryanne and she will give you one!

timerAge 3 – Kindergarten – How Fast Can You Do This?
Get a stopwatch or timer and see how long it takes your son or daughter to do the following:

  • Jump up and down 25 times
  • Say the A B C’s
  • Run from the kitchen to their bedroom and back
  • Make their bed

Talk to your child about how fast they were doing those things. Tell them it’s good to be fast, but it’s also good to slow down and take time to talk to God. Talk about how much God loves us and then sit down and pray together.
