the wrong she has done.

SAY THIS:Who does Jesus love? Jesus loves everyone.
REMEMBER THIS:“Love each other as I
have loved you.” JOHN 15:12, NIV
BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
When you go in your child’s room this month say, “Good morning, [child’s name]!” (Hold arms out wide.) “Mommy/Daddy loves you SOOOOO much! And Jesus loves you even MORE!” (Hug child.)
As you drive, say the memory verse together: “Love each other as I have loved you.” Take turns replacing the words “each other” with the names of people you know.
Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, “Dear God, we want to love everyone the way Jesus loves everyone. Please help [child’s name] and me to love others no matter what, just like Jesus loves everyone no matter what. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
Tell your child you’re giving him the very important job of turning the water on and off. Show him how to do his important job and then encourage him when he does it. Talk about how Jesus gave Peter an important job to do, because He loved Him.
