This week’s verse is especially great for your younger children. It is nice and short but teaches them great truth. This was Sweet Angel’s very first memory verse.
“God is Love”
-1 John 4:8-
Superman and I try to stress to our children each and every day that God is love and God loves them. One way we remind them is by singing them their own special song at bed time. It is our own version of “Jesus Loves the Little Children.”
Jesus loves Sweet Angel
Loves her so very much
He made her eyes he made her toes
He made her tushy, made her toes
Jesus loves Sweet Angel very much!
(We really use her first and last name)
Little Buddy gets his own song too. I think he feels pretty special each night when his mommy, daddy and big sister all crowd around him and sing his very own song.
Ultimately we want our kids to know that God’s amazing love allowed Jesus to lay aside his crown and come down to earth to die for our sins. Our almost 4 year old daughter has known this truth for some time now and last Tuesday she told me that she wanted to pray and ask Jesus to come live in her heart!!!!! It is amazing to me how she can grasp the problem of sin and her need for a savior. It was an incredible privilege to lead my daughter to Christ in prayer!
Sweet Angel right after praying to accept Jesus as her Savior.
*tears of joy…again*
