GENESIS 8:1-9:17 God keeps Noah and his family safe and then gives the rainbow as a sign of a new promise.
SAY THIS: Who keeps His promises? God keeps His promises.
Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for loving us and always keeping Your promises, like listening to our prayers, loving us no matter what, and never leaving us. You are the best, and I pray we never, ever forget how awesome You are! We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."
"Trust the Lord with all your heart." Proverbs 3:5, NCV
BASIC TRUTH: God loves me.
From Parent Cue:
FAITH AT RISK By Reggie Joiner
Most moms and dads are ready to fight the battle for their children’s safety and future as soon as they are born. Parents will buckle them into car seats that fit like plastic straitjackets, construct beds and play zones with prison bars, hook their arms to an expandable leash to walk through the mall, and install video surveillance systems so their children can be monitored from every room. Parents are programmed to protect and provide. We feel responsible to make sure we have the kind of boundaries that will keep children safe.
Over time parents become convinced their primary job is protection, so we make rules, set limits, and put up fences because that is what we are supposed to do. We are parents. We will insulate, isolate, and segregate our kids from everything we think might be a threat. It is easy for us to become more concerned about their safety than we do their faith. It is possible to sacrifice the very things they need to learn and the things they should experience by our zeal to protect them . . .
