“Let us keep looking to Jesus.”
HEBREWS 12:2a, NIrV
Cuddle with your child this month and pray, “Dear God, Jesus taught us that the most important thing we can do is love people the way He loves us. Please help me do that. Help me love people the way Jesus loves me. I know [child’s name] is going to grow up watching me, and I want him/her to see me following Jesus. I love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
