We don't read very many stories in the Bible about Jesus getting angry, but in today's story Jesus becomes indignant. This week's theme is all about belonging to God's family - no matter who you are, how much life experience you have or where you live. We are all a part of God's great-big-cross-continent-extended family!
Read over the text in Mark 10:13-16 with your family, then watch the mid-week video above.
Challenge #1: Memorize the Bible Memory Verse this week by creating a special collage with pictures you printed or drew yourself. Can you repeat it back to me this week? Then think about a group that might be disadvantaged or undervalued in today's society... how might the story or the verse change if it was retold today?
Challenge #2: Reread the story with your parents. Then, ask them about a time when they had to be an advocate for you. Perhaps in a medical situation or at school, or in another environment. Ask them about a mama or papa bear moment. Jesus sticks up for kids, and so do parents and care givers.
Share your experience with these challenges with me next week or online!
