God's Goodness Book (Monday)

Read: PSALM 77:10-15 

"A scrapbook!" Ava exclaimed as she opened a birthday present her aunt had sent. "I can put all my favorite drawings and awards and stuff in it. This is so cool!"

Soon Ava was eagerly at work, sorting through old school papers, report cards, and drawings. "These math problems look so easy now," she said, tossing aside an old test.

"They didn't look so easy a year ago, did they?" Mom said. "I remember how hard you studied, and then we prayed together about each test."

Ava nodded. "I remember that."

"Why don't you save a few of those papers to help you remember how God answered your prayer?" suggested Mom.

As Ava set aside a few of the old tests, her dog came in and began sniffing the pages. Ava laughed. "I guess Bootsie wants us to put something in the scrapbook so we can remember her too."

"Not a bad idea," replied Mom. "It's good to remember all of God's blessings, whether they're problems He's helped us with, family, pets, or friends."

"Bootsie sure has been a good pet," said Ava. "I'll put a few pictures of her in my scrapbook." She held up another snapshot. "Here's one of our house. I'll put that in too." Ava soon had several pages finished. "Look at my scrapbook now, Mom. It will remind me of lots of God's blessings."

Mom went to look. "Very nice! Instead of calling it a scrapbook, you could call it God's Goodness Book."

Ava giggled. "That sounds like what Grandma calls the Bible--she calls it the Good Book."

"And it's true--the Bible is full of God's goodness," said Mom. "It tells us how He answered prayer and cared for people way back in Bible times--and most importantly, how He sent Jesus to save us from sin and make us His children. When we look back on our own lives and remember how God has blessed us, we can see how Jesus has cared for us and know that we can always trust Him."

"God's Goodness Book," Ava repeated thoughtfully. "I like it! The next drawing I'm going to add is a picture of a cross to remind me how good He is to me." JORLYN A. GRASSER

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

How has God shown you His goodness in your life? Take a moment to look back and see how He’s blessed you. Think about how He helped you in the past with schoolwork, a family problem, or other difficulties. Read about how He helped people in the Bible, and how Jesus died and rose again to save us from sin. He has not changed. You can trust Him to help you and take care of you.

I WILL REMEMBER THE WORKS OF THE LORD; SURELY I WILL REMEMBER YOUR WONDERS OF OLD. (NKJV)

Power Blackout (Tuesday)

Read: PHILIPPIANS 4:4-7; 1 THESSALONIANS 5:15-18

Lucas sighed as he sat down at the kitchen table and began his homework. What a lousy day, he thought. Nothing has gone right. As he opened a book, the lights went out--not just in the kitchen, but in the whole house. "Hey!" Lucas called. "What happened?"

"It must be a power blackout," said Dad, coming up from the basement where he had been working. "The streetlight out front is off too."

Mom came into the kitchen and lit a candle. That helped a little bit, and Lucas managed to finish his homework. "Tell you what--let's build a fire in the fireplace," suggested Dad after a while. "You kids can get your sleeping bags and put them in front of the fire."

"All right!" exclaimed Lucas's sister, Bri. "It'll almost be like camping out! Can we roast marshmallows too?"

"Sure," said Mom, and using flashlights, they went off to find their sleeping bags. Soon they were all settled in the living room.

"You know, when the lights first went out, I figured it was just another bad thing to happen today," Lucas said as he set up a board game for them to play. "But this has turned out to be fun."

"It sure has," agreed Bri, pulling a golden-brown marshmallow off a roasting fork.

Dad nodded. "This power blackout is a good reminder that how we view our troubles makes a big difference. We can get worried and fret over them, or we can look for the good in our situation. When we remember that Jesus has saved us and has promised to use all our troubles for good, we can be joyful and trust Him with our problems. We need to look to Jesus and ask Him to help us keep a good attitude and find lessons He may want to teach us through our difficulties. We might even find a way to turn a problem into an adventure."

"Yeah," Lucas said with a smile. "Like tonight!"

"That's right," Mom chimed in. "But even when really bad things happen, Jesus promises to be with us and help us through them. When we keep that in mind, we see our troubles in a different light." CHARLES VANDERMEER

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

When something happens that seems like trouble, do you start to worry or complain? Instead, pray about your problem, knowing that Jesus loves you and has a purpose for everything He allows in your life. Ask Him to help you have a joyful attitude even when things aren’t going the way you’d like. Trust Him to be with you and bring good out of your situation.

Up the Down Escalator (Wednesday)

Read: TITUS 3:3-7

 

"Can we ride the escalator while you shop?" Declan asked as Mom looked at some merchandise on the first floor of a department store.

 

Mom hesitated. "Well, okay--if you're careful not to run or bother the other shoppers." So Declan and his sister Kate rode the escalator all the way up to the top floor and back down.

 

"That was fun, but you know what would be really fun?" Declan told his sister. "Let's try going up the one coming down." He grinned. "Bet you can't do it!"

 

Kate shook her head. "Mom wouldn't let us do that!"

 

But Declan was determined to try it. "Watch this," he said.

 

Kate watched, and she saw that each time Declan got near the top, someone was in his way and he was moved farther down again. It was obvious some of the people riding down the escalator were annoyed with him, but he didn't seem to care. He just kept trying--until he bumped into the store manager just as he was about to reach the top. "Come with me, young man," the manager said sternly.

 

Declan's face flushed when he saw his mother waiting at the foot of the escalator. Now he was in real trouble.

 

"It sounds like you worked very hard to go up the down escalator," observed Dad when he heard about Declan's escapade later that evening.

Declan nodded. "I would have made it if nobody had stopped me."

 

"You remind me of our sermon at church last week," Dad said. "We talked about people who insist they can ride up to heaven on their own efforts, remember?" He shook his head. "They try so hard to be good, but they'll never make it. Perhaps you could have made it all the way up that escalator, but no amount of effort will ever get us to heaven on our own. We can only get there by trusting Jesus."

 

"I do know that," said Declan. "He's kind of like the up escalator."

 

"That's a good way to look at it," said Dad. "He came down from heaven to save us, and He's the only way back. We can rest and trust Him to save us from sin and give us eternal life." CHARLES VANDERMEER

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Have you been trying to earn God’s favor by doing good things? Maybe you help other kids whenever you can, cheerfully do chores at home, and do your best to behave. It’s great to do things like that, but don’t think good deeds will get you to heaven. Jesus is the only way to be saved from sin and have eternal life. Trust Him as your Savior today.

Family Look-alikes (Thursday)

Read: EPHESIANS 4:1-3 

 

Great-aunt Louisa gave Lily a hug at the family reunion. "You're the spittin' image of your mother," the elderly woman told her.

 

Lily tried to smile, but she was getting very tired of hearing remarks like that. All morning people had been saying them. This family reunion isn't much fun, thought Lily. The only thing older people seem to talk about is how much I and all my cousins have grown and who we look like.

 

Things looked brighter when Uncle John organized a softball game for all the kids. Good! Maybe this reunion won't be totally boring after all! thought Lily as she raced toward the ball field. She loved to play softball. "I'll be the pitcher!" she shouted eagerly.

 

The game was really fun. Lily got three hits--one of them a home run. She was a good pitcher too, and her team won the game seven to five.

 

As everyone headed back to the picnic tables, Great-aunt Louisa cornered Lily again. She frowned at Lily's sweaty, matted hair and the big spots of dirt on the knees of her jeans. "Well!" said Aunt Louisa. "You don't look so much like your mother now."

 

For a moment, Lily felt annoyed and wanted to say something rude in return, but she held her tongue. She was glad her mother came to her rescue. "Yes, Aunt Louisa, Lily may look like me," said Mom, "but we're thrilled she inherited her father's athletic abilities."

 

On the way home that evening, Mom turned to Lily. "Dad and I are very proud of the way you acted today," she said. "I know you got tired of hearing over and over again how much you look like me, but you were very polite and friendly."

 

Dad nodded. "You looked a lot like another one of your family members today."

 

"I did?" Lily asked. "Who did I look like? Aunt Penelope?"

 

Dad laughed. "No--you looked like Jesus! You treated everyone with kindness and respect, even though people said the same things over and over--or even things they shouldn't have said at all. That's what Jesus would have done. Because you're part of His family, you're growing to look more and more like Him."

 

RAELENE E. PHILLIPS

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do people often say you remind them of someone in your family? Perhaps you look a lot like a parent or sibling or another family member. What about Jesus? Do people ever say you remind them of Him? We resemble Him when we show His love and kindness to others—even when they say or do things we don’t like. If you’re part of God’s family, He’s helping you grow to look more like Jesus.

Make Sure (Friday)

Read: JOHN 3:1-3, 14-16

"I...I want Jesus to be my Savior, Pastor Holden," Cameron said when he went forward at the close of the children's program at church.

Pastor Holden smiled at Cameron. "I'm glad you want to make sure you know the Lord. I remember you came forward one night about a year ago because you wanted to be saved. Tell me--did Jesus save you that night?"

"I don't know." Cameron sighed. "I thought He did--I was even baptized after that. But I keep wondering--how do I know I really meant it when I asked Jesus to forgive and save me? Maybe I should ask Him again, just to make sure."

"If you're having doubts, I'm glad you came to talk about it," said the pastor. "Salvation is certainly not something you want to guess about."

"So should I pray again and ask Jesus to save me?" Cameron asked.

"Saying a prayer isn't what saves you, Cameron--whether you pray one time or a hundred times," said Pastor Holden. "No matter how many good deeds you do, you can't save yourself--not by praying, being baptized, giving money to church, being kind, or doing any other good thing. You're saved only by Jesus. Put your faith in Him."

Cameron nodded. "You're saying that being saved isn't something we do--it's something God does for us, right?"

 

"Exactly," said Pastor Holden. "Believe that Jesus loves you and that He died for your sins on the cross and rose again. Trust Him to save you. In John 6:47, Jesus says all who believe in Him have everlasting life."

"I learned that verse in church last year," Cameron said.

"So, do you believe in Jesus, Cameron?" Pastor Holden asked. "Or are you counting on your prayers--or maybe on your baptism--to save you?"

"I do know those things won't get me to heaven," Cameron answered. Then with a nod he added firmly, "I believe in Jesus."

 

"Good," said Pastor Holden. "The next time you have doubts, feel free to come talk to me again, but you can also talk to Jesus about how you're feeling. He understands and wants to help you. Let Him remind you that He already did everything that needed to be done to save you." SHERRY L. KUYT

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do you believe in Jesus? Do you know that He died and rose again for you? Do you realize you can’t do anything to save yourself? Make sure you trust in Jesus alone to save you. (To learn more, click the "Good News!" button in the right column of this page.) Then, when you experience doubt, talk to Jesus about it—and maybe a Christian adult too. God wants to help you know for sure that you have everlasting life.
