Family Fridays: Jesus is the Comforter

UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

On a cold winter night lay a comforter from your bed down on the floor.  Roll your child up in it.  They  usually love this.  Ask the children if they feel warm and snug.  You might also ask does it feel good to be warm and snug.  While they are immobilized by being wrapped in the blanket, tell them to stay there, get your Bible, and read about Jesus being the one who comforts us in our afflictions (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
