December 2017 - Week 1 Elementary Parent Cue

  DECEMBER

           2017

WEEK ONE:

1 JOHN 4:9-11
God gave us Jesus

SAY THIS:

Because God gave,
I can give.

DO THIS:

MORNING TIME


This month is all about generosity and your child will be given so many opportunities to practice this life app. Every time you see them carry out a generous action, write it on a note and hang it on their mirror. Affirming your child will empower them to keep going!

REMEMBER THIS:

"Command the rich to do what is good. Tell them to be rich in doing good things.
They must give freely. They must be willing to share."
1 Timothy 6:18, NIrV

LIFE APP:  
GENEROSITY – Making someone's day by giving something away

LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS THIS CHRISTMAS

By Carey Nieuwhof


Expectations rarely run higher than they do during the holidays. From what to give to creating the perfect family traditions. Expectations hover just beyond reach of achievability for most of us.

A few years ago I was listening to a speaker, and only remember from what he said. It was when he stopped his main talk and asked the audience, "You know what the secret to happiness is, right?" . . . (Pause) . . . "Low expectations."

It's so simple, a bit disappointing, and so true. The only reason you and I ever get disappointed is because we expected something better.  Expect nothing, and you'll never be disappointed. Lowering your expectations could make this Christmas so much more enjoyable . . .
