Watching Your Speed
Word of the Week: Peace
Bible Verse: Be still and know that I am God. Proverbs 46:10
Story: Mary & Martha (Luke 10:38-42)
Prayer: Lord, I pray that I will not be too busy in my life, but that I will take time to focus on You. Help me to take time everyday to pray and talk to You. Help me to be excited about listening to Bible stories and going to church to learn about You. Amen
Parents: 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 God our time will help prioritize our never ending list of things to do! Commit to giving God some time each day this week.
Toddlers: This week spend time reading to your child out of a children’s Bible every day. If you don’t have one, see Pastor Ryanne and she will give you one!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Get a stopwatch and time how long it takes your son or daughter to do the following tasks: 1) jump up and down 25 times. 2) say the ABC’s 3) run from the kitchen to his/her bedroom and back 4) make their bed. Then talk to them about how fast they were doing those things. Tell them that it is good to be fast, but God says it is also good to slow down and take time to pray. Then pray with your child, thanking God for them!
