We'd love for you to use this short devotional to review today's story with your kids.
Background: Today we discuss being first and last in the kingdom of God. An argument broke out among the disciples about who would be the greatest in God’s kingdom. They were looking at the kingdom all wrong! They asked Jesus and he told them that unless they changed and became like children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. He encouraged them to humble themselves like children.
Opening/Ice Breaker: Have you ever want to be first in line for something? What was it? Why did you want to be first?
Read Matthew 18, 20; John 13
- Do you know anyone who loves others with a humble heart? What are they like?
- What do you enjoy about serving others? What is difficult?
- Is it ever hard to be humble? Why or why not?
