Parent’s Corner- April 7, 2019
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26 ESV
That is the question, isn’t it? That might be the most important question we can consider ourselves or present to our children. “Do you believe this?” In the weeks leading up to Easter, as we consider, ourselves, the great sacrifice made by Jesus, and the great given to us by God through Jesus’ death, our children are considering it too. In these brief glimpses of what was taught in Sunday school, may you be encouraged to continue the conversation with your children, and read the passages again and again. Have the conversation, ask the question, and continue to pray. The Lord loves our kids, and as I pray for my kids, I would pray that yours would learn to love the lord even more each day!
May you find joy in your parenting this week!
