MATTHEW 8:5-13 A soldier asks Jesus
for help, and Jesus
miraculously helps him.
SAY THIS: Who loves you? Jesus loves me.
Cuddle up wth your child this month and pray, "Dear God, You are awesome! Thank You for sending Jesus to be our friend forever. Thank You that He will never, ever stop loving us. Please help us love others the way You love us. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."
“How wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
Ephesians 3:18, NIV
BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
From Parent Cue:
HUDDLE IN CLOSE By Brooklyn Lindsey
Life brings tragedy and heartache. And as a parent, you will likely have to watch your child experience grief—whether it be over the loss of a special toy, a friendship or boyfriend, or even the life of someone close to them. And when it happens, your heart breaks too. Because you want to fix it, resolve it, but you know you can’t. How do you walk through it with them? What words do you say and how do you comfort your grieving child?
Huddling in close is one of the greatest kindnesses we can show our kids during these times.
We don’t have to say anything.
They likely don’t want an explanation.
We realize without asking that everything is not fine in their world.
The words that they need are your proximity and your heart’s empathy.
Huddling in close is kindness for the weeping . . .
