Question of the Week: We serve the King who heals! What do you know about healing?

Healing is kind of like fixing or repairing. Have you ever had something break on your body? Maybe a broken bone or a big cut? Your body needed to be fixed, put back together. That is what healing is like! God can heal anything and anyone. Sometimes He heals us slowly, like when we have to wear a cast for weeks and weeks. Sometimes He heals us right away! Some of our brokenness is on our bodies, things we can see. Sometimes our hearts feel broken, like when we are worried or afraid. God heals our broken hearts too! He fixes our feelings of being broken - inside and outside!

Identify and pray for any areas where healing is needed.

Question of the Week:  We are called to honor others!  Honoring others means respecting them.  How do you show someone respect?

When you respect someone, you show them honor in your actions and words.  You respect your parents by obeying quickly, even when they are not looking.  You respect your teachers by listening when they are telling a story instead of talking during the lesson.  You respect others by speaking kind words and telling the truth.  Respecting others is something we do when we can be seen and when we think no one is watching.  There is blessing when we respect others!  Let's be Kids of Honor!

Plan one way you can show respect this week.

Question of the Week:  We can honor God with speaking words of truth!  What are words of truth?

Have you ever made a promise?  Maybe you promised your parents that you will do all of the pet chores if they let you get a dog.  Or maybe you promised your friend at school that you will play with them at recess.  God wants our words to be full of truth.  That means that we do what we say we will do!  We keep our promises!  Sometimes it is hard to keep a promise, it takes work and sacrifice.  When we speak words of truth, we honor God!

Question of the Week:  God wants us to honor our parents!  What does honor mean?

When you honor someone, you show them that they are valued and respected.  Honor is not just a word, it is an action!  You honor your parents by listening to them and obeying them.  Honor isn't just trying to follow the rules so that you don't get into trouble.  Nope!  Honor is obeying your parents because you know that God has given them to you and they are important in your life.  Do you know what God has to say about honoring your parents?  He says that when you honor your parents, you will be blessed!  Let's honor our parents today!

Give your child one or two positive examples of how they honor you at home.

Question of the Week: Jesus changes us!  His changes are always good!  How do you think Jesus wants to change you?

Jesus has as incredible life for you!  He wants to make you more like Him.  You don't ever have to worry when Jesus changes you, His changes are always good for you!  He wants to change the way you see so that you see things more like He sees.  He wants to change the way you act to people so that you act more like Him.  He wants to change the words you say so that you sound more like Him.  His changes are always good and always take you deeper into the incredible life He has for you!

Pray about one way that Jesus wants to change you this week.

Question of the Week:  You are called!  The Holy Spirit fills you and shows you how and where to share the love of Jesus!  Where do you think He might be calling you to share His love?

You are called!  That means that Jesus has a plan for you.  You can think of it like a job, Jesus has an important job for you!  He has called you to share His love with the world!  Does that sound like a pretty big and important job?  You don't have to feel alone or overwhelmed because you have the help and power of the Holy Spirit.  Where might He be calling you to share His love?  Who comes to your mind when you think about school?  Or who comes to your mind when you think about your baseball team?  What about your dance class or your daycare?  Or what about your neighbors?  He is calling you to share His love with those people and you have Holy Spirit power and boldness to go out and do it!

Talk about one way your child can show the love of Jesus to someone.

Question of the Week:  The Holy Spirit is powerful!  What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?

When Jesus went back to Heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit.  When the Holy Spirit came to Jesus' followers, there was a rushing wind and tongues of fire!  Woah!  The Holy Spirit is powerful and just like wind and fire, the Holy Spirit can fill every space.  When the Holy Spirit fills you, you are filled with His love and power!  When the Holy Spirit fills you, you are filled with understanding about how to follow Jesus.  When the Holy Spirit fills you, you are filled with a love and desire to tell everyone about Jesus.  When the Holy Spirit fills you, you are filled with warmth, love, hope, joy, and peace!

Talk about how the Holy Spirit is speaking to your family today.
