“A heart at peace gives life to the body…” PV 14:30

unnamed-6Let’s teach our kids the life-giving truth that jealousy and comparison make us empty and angry, but celebrating others brings peace and joy.

Elizabeth is a woman in the Bible who didn’t act jealous or compare. Her relative, Mary was chosen to carry Jesus, yet Elizabeth showed no envy, but rejoiced with her.

This week, take a minute to:
1) Ask your children a way you can celebrate a friend’s achievement and have fun doing it.
2) Celebrate your own kids by letting each of them know a few reasons why you love them.

  1. Oh, Linsey, this is just the verse and the application my 10 and 11 year old grandsons need. Thanks for being faithful to share God’s word.
