Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are thrown into fire when they won’t bow and pray to a statue (Daniel 3:10-13). God proves that He has the power to always be with us when He saves them from the fire.
In the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-29a), a business owner went on a trip and put three guys in charge of some money. Each one did something different, but only two of them were found faithful and given more responsibility. Our Bottom Line is: Show you can be trusted with more by taking care of what you have.
Each day’s devotion includes:
1. a verse(s) to read
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s)
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion
4. a suggested prayer.
Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
