LIFE APP:  
COMPASSION – Caring enough to do something about someone else's need
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


As a parent you are always taking care of your child! But this time, do something out of the ordinary, like one of their chores, and tell them you wanted to do it to meet their need. Leave a note with the task you completed telling them you love caring for them!

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: What is the greatest gift you ever received? How did it make you feel?
Q & A for parents: Share about a time you had a big need met by someone when you didn't even ask for help.

 DRIVE TIME


While on your drive, ask your preteen if they have ever had the opportunity to share the good news about Jesus. If they haven't, maybe tell them about a time someone shared it with you or you with someone else. Encourage them by saying that they don't always have to use words to share the good news, they can use their actions! Be a good friend, let others go first, find a way to serve. All those things show the love of Jesus.

 BED TIME


God sent His Son for everyone! Because of Jesus, we’re freed to love God and love others. So you can share the good news about Jesus with anyone you meet. That might be through your words or through showing God’s love in your actions. Pray that God will show you when and how to share the good news about Jesus with your words and through giving God’s love to others.
