It Happened to Me (Monday)

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 

 

Harper's back at school today, Emma noticed. Maybe her mom is doing better. But a few minutes later, Emma learned that Harper's mother remained in critical condition after being in a serious car accident a week before. Many of their classmates stared curiously at Harper and avoided speaking to her. A few of them awkwardly attempted to comfort her. At least they're trying, Emma thought. But since Dad was in a bad car accident last year, I think I know just how Harper feels. Maybe it would help her if I tell her about Dad's accident.

 

Emma walked over to Harper. "You doing okay?" she asked.

 

Harper shrugged. "Dad thought it would get my mind off Mom's accident if I came to school, but it's not really working."

 

"It's hard, I know," said Emma. "My dad was badly hurt in a car wreck last year." "Oh." Harper sighed. "Then you know how I feel!"

 

Emma nodded. "I was so scared, but I knew lots of people were praying for him, and that helped me. Would…would you like me to pray for your mom?"

 

"Really?" Harper tried to smile. "I don't think anyone ever prayed for us before."

 

"I'll pray for your whole family," Emma assured her. "Would you like to pray together now?"

"I don't know much about praying," said Harper.

 

"That's okay," Emma said. "I'll pray. Then maybe I can tell you more about how Jesus helped our family through that tough time."

 

Harper nodded and followed Emma's example as she closed her eyes and bowed

her head.

 

When Emma got home from school that day, she told her mom about Harper's mother. "I told Harper how knowing Jesus helped me when Dad had that accident. She listened to what I said because she knew I understood how she felt." Emma smiled. "It's almost like God used Dad's accident to help me know what to say to Harper."

 

"Yes," said Mom. "That's what the Bible says. Jesus comforts us during hard times, and He tells us to comfort others when they go through hard times too. One way we can do that is by telling hurting people how Jesus helped us like you did. Let's pray it will encourage Harper to trust Him."

Emma nodded. "Let's pray for her right now." -Linda Weddle

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Have you experienced difficult things? Maybe there’s been a serious illness, a death, or an especially hard time in your family. Jesus cares and offers His comfort—through His Word, through talking with Him, and sometimes through other people. You, in turn, can comfort others. Pray for those who are going through a tough situation. Trust God to help you reach out to them and tell them about His love.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: 2 Corinthians 1:4 (NLT) (KJV)

He [Jesus] comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.

Open Wide (Tuesday)

Read: Psalm 119:129-135 

 

"Mom, come and see!" Cora called. "Robins are building a nest in the tree by the porch." Mom went to join Cora, and together they watched a pair of robins fly back and forth with grass, moss, and small twigs in their beaks.

 

A couple of weeks later, the robins began carrying worms to the nest and Cora heard peeping sounds. "They have babies!" she exclaimed, and every day she spent some time watching the activity around the robins' nest.

 

One day Cora's grandpa came to visit. "Come see our robins, Grandpa!" Cora eagerly led him down the back porch steps and pointed to the nest in the nearby tree.

 

"Here comes Mother Robin," said Grandpa, and he and Cora watched as three little bald heads bobbed up, three little mouths opened wide, and one of them received the food from its mother.

 

Cora smiled. "They open their mouths so wide! I can tell they're getting stronger, and I can't wait to watch them learn to fly."

 

"That will be interesting," Grandpa agreed as he and Cora sat down on the steps. "What do you think would happen if those baby robins wouldn't open their mouths for food?"

 

"Well, they wouldn't get fed--and they sure wouldn't ever get strong enough to fly."

 

"That's right," said Grandpa. "I have another question for you. What happens when Christians don't open their hearts and minds to take in the milk and meat of God's Word--the spiritual food He gives to strengthen His children?"

 

"You're saying I need to read my Bible, aren't you?" Cora sighed. "I know I should do that, but it's really hard sometimes. I'm busy with homework and sports and stuff."

 

Grandpa put his arm around Cora's shoulders. "I know it can be hard, but remember that Jesus feeds us spiritually through His Word. He uses it to strengthen our faith in Him and help us grow as Christians. He does that when we read it on our own and when we learn about it with others, like we do at church."

Cora nodded. "I do learn a lot from the Bible at church, but I'd like to start reading it on my own too. I want to be more like those robins and open wide."

-Carolyn E. Yost

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Are you opening wide to take in the spiritual food Jesus wants to give you? Do you read your Bible and listen carefully when you hear it taught at church? Jesus has lots of good food for you in His Word, the Bible—promises, lessons, encouragement, warnings, and much more. Listen to what He has to say to you. He will use the truth of His Word to give you strength and help you grow.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: Psalm 81:10 (NKJV) (KJV)

I am the Lord your God…Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

Lifeprints (Wednesday)

Read: Colossians 3:8-9, 12-15 

 

At the sound of the school bell, Flynn slowly made his way into the building. He went to the drinking fountain and pushed his way in at the front of the long line of kids waiting there. "Hey, no cuts!" several of them called out. Flynn ignored them and drank deeply. He shuffled down the hall to the coatrack and muttered when he saw a jacket already hanging on the coat hook nearest the door. He yanked the offending coat off, threw it across another hook, and put his own jacket in his favorite spot.

 

It was the start of a typical day for Flynn. During class time, he daydreamed instead of studying. When the morning recess bell rang, he was the first one out the door. After recess, he was the last one in. He glared at his teacher when she made him stay in at afternoon recess to finish his work.

 

That evening, Flynn's grandma stayed with him while his dad went to a

 

parent-teacher conference at school. While he was gone, Flynn got out his detective set and pretended he was solving mysteries. When his dad returned, Flynn greeted him with a grin. "Hey, Dad, you better be careful what you touch, because we leave prints on everything."

 

Dad nodded. "I know. And what kind of prints have you been leaving?"

"The same kind as always, of course. People's fingerprints don't change."

 

"True," said Dad, "but wherever we go, we leave other prints too. Let's call them lifeprints. Everything we do makes an impression--a lifeprint--on other people. What kind of prints do you make on your teacher and the kids at school?"

 

Flynn looked at the floor. "Not very good ones, I guess."

 

Dad nodded. "I'm afraid you're right. I was sorry to learn about that tonight. But unlike fingerprints, you can change the kind of lifeprints you make. When you trusted in Jesus, He made you a new person who's able to leave the kind of lifeprints He did--lifeprints of love and sacrifice. With His help, you can leave lifeprints that point others to Him instead of yourself. I think you need to do that, don't you?"

 

Flynn nodded slowly. "I'll trust Jesus to help me--and ask Him to forgive me for the way I've been acting." -Hazel W. Marett

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

What kind of lifeprints are you making on others? Do kids and teachers see kindness, respect, and friendliness in your life? Do they see you put others ahead of yourself? Do you show responsibility in your school assignments and jobs at home? If not, ask Jesus to forgive you, and trust Him to help you change. If you know Him as your Savior, you can leave lifeprints that point to Him.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV) (KJV)

Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Part of God’s Family (Thursday)

Read: Ephesians 2:19-22 

 

"This trip is so much fun!" said Clara as her family drove back to their hotel during spring vacation.

 

Her sister Sydney grinned. "Yeah! That water park today was really cool! What are we gonna do tomorrow, Dad?"

 

"Tomorrow we're going to church," Dad answered.

Sydney frowned. "We don't usually go to church when we're on vacation."

"Yeah," said Clara. "Won't we feel out of place in a church where we don't know anyone?"

 

"Actually, we do know someone--or at least, Pastor Burke does," Dad replied. "He has friends who live in this town, and your mom and I would like to meet them, so we're going to their church tomorrow. I think we'll feel at home there." The girls were not convinced, but they knew better than to argue.

 

Early Sunday morning, Mom woke Clara and Sydney. They had breakfast at the hotel and then headed to church. "Can't we at least skip Sunday school?" Clara asked. "We won't even know where to go."

 

"Pastor Burke's friends have a daughter your age, so she'll take you there," Mom assured them.

When they arrived, they were welcomed at the door by Pastor Burke's friends Mr. and Mrs. Ortiz and their daughter Gabriella. "Look at those posters on the wall!" Sydney whispered to Clara as they followed Gabriella to her Sunday school class. "They have the same Wednesday night program we do!" The girls were also a little surprised to find they enjoyed the songs they sang--both in Sunday school and in the morning church service--even though they hadn't heard some of them before.

 

"That wasn't bad after all," said Sydney as they got into their car after church.

 

"No," said Clara. "Actually, I liked it a lot. I liked their songs almost as much as the ones we sing at home. And Gabriella and the other kids were nice."

 

Dad smiled. "When we're away from our own church, we might feel like we're the only Christians in the world, but that's not true. There are people everywhere who love Jesus, and it's nice to meet some of them."

 

"Yes," said Mom. "After all, we all belong to God's family! Meeting Christians in unfamiliar places reminds us we're never alone." -Linda Weddle

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Have you ever visited a church in a place you didn’t live? Was it a lot like your church at home? Chances are that some things were familiar and other things were different, but the important thing is that you were able to meet others who love Jesus. A church in a new place can be a home away from home because all those who trust in Jesus are part of God’s family.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: Ephesians 2:19 (NIV) (KJV)

You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household..

Out of the Tube (Friday)

Read: Proverbs 10:31-32; Ecclesiastes 10:12-13 

 

I gotta go, Ian texted his friend Spencer after helping him with a homework question. I'm babysitting Colton, so I'd better see if he finished his snack. Ian put down his phone and returned to the kitchen, but his little brother was no longer there. "Colton, where are you?" Ian called.

 

"In here." The little boy's answer came from the bathroom.

 

Ian hurried in and found toothpaste all over the counter. More was oozing out of the tube as Colton stood on a stool, trying to push it back in.

 

"Colton!" Ian grabbed the tube away from his brother. "You can't put toothpaste back. Once it's out of the tube, it stays out. Don't be such a dummy!"

 

Colton began to cry. "I'm dumb," he sobbed. "I'm a dummy!"

 

When Ian saw how upset his little brother was, he wished he hadn't been so harsh. "No, you're not, Colton, you just have to learn some stuff."

 

"But you said…"

Ian rumpled his brother's hair. "Forget it. I shouldn't have said that. I'm sorry."

 

When Mom and Dad came home, they asked how the babysitting went. "I'm a dummy," Colton whimpered.

 

"No, you're not," said Ian quickly. He knew he'd have to explain what had happened. "We had a…a toothpaste explosion, that's all," he said, and he told his parents about it.

"And I'm a dummy," Colton repeated. "Ian said so."

 

"I told you you're not," Ian replied. "I told you I'm sorry for saying that."

"Colton, you shouldn't have been playing with the toothpaste," Dad said, "but Ian, you should have been watching him more carefully. And it sounds like you already know you were quick to say hurtful words."

 

"Yeah, and I really am sorry--I just wish Colton would believe me!"

 

"Words are like toothpaste squeezed out of a tube--you can't take them back," said Mom. "You can only clean up the mess with forgiveness. I know Colton will forgive you once he understands you're sorry you hurt him. But there's someone else who's always ready to forgive--and who will help you speak loving words instead of hurtful ones.

 

"You mean Jesus, don't you?" Ian sighed. "I need to ask Him to clean up the mess I made." -Linda Weddle

 

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Do you often speak in anger? Do you scold or make unkind remarks to brothers or sisters? Do you jokingly say things without considering how others will feel about them? Words can never be unsaid—they can only be forgiven. The Bible says your speech should always be “with grace.” In other words, speak in a way that shows others the grace and love of Jesus.

 

TODAY'S KEY VERSE: Colossians 4:6 (NKJV) (KJV)

Let your speech always be with grace.
