April 8th & 9th Parent Note for Remix/Revolution
Hi Remix, Revolution and SPIN Parents!
As we celebrate Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection this Easter season, we’ll be taking a closer look at the way humility shows up throughout the end of Jesus’ time on earth.
In Matthew 26:36-56, we take a look at the very garden where Jesus showed an unbelievable understanding of how important it was to put the will of the Father ahead of His own. Jesus knew why He came to earth. While He prayed for His Father to make another way, ultimately Jesus knew that He had to let go of what He wanted for the sake of saving the world from sin.
Bottom Line: I can put others first by letting go of what I want. At some point in our lives, we’ll be faced with a decision to give up something we want for what someone else wants. For Jesus this was a matter of life and death. While that may not be the case for us, showing humility in these situations is still important. We pray that kids will realize that showing humility is often more important than getting their way.
Our memory verse for April comes from Philippians 2:3 (NLT):
“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.”
Make sure to check out the rest of our resource on the Kids' Time Website. We have weekly devotionals you can do along with your child, to dance and sing along with the worship songs, watch Bible story videos and much more!
We our started our Change4Change fundraising drive for Feed My Starving Children last weekend. Remind your kids they can bring in their canisters and deposit any money they’ve collected. We will be collecting through the end of May. The money will go towards our FMSC meal packing event happening in a few weeks.
Let know if you have any questions or concerns. I’d love to hear from you!
