“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.
