Question of the Week: Jesus wants us to be focused on having a relationship with Him. Why is a relationship more important than following rules?
Rules are important but Jesus doesn't want for rules to take up all of our thinking. When we only focus on following rules, our minds are filled with thinking about every rule we need to remember. Before we know it, all we are thinking about is what a great rule follower we have become! Jesus wants our minds and hearts to be filled with getting to know Him better so that we can move forward with Him! Instead o thinking about keeping track of all of the rules we can follow, He wants us to think about Him and follow His lead!
Tell your child something special about your relationship with Jesus.
