Ask: Have you ever seen a performer
trying to keep plates spinning before?
Discuss: Trying to keep those plates
going is a whole lot of work and tasks
to do so they don't fall. Did you know
that we can't do any work or task that
will earn our way to God?
There is only one thing to do and that
is believe that Jesus saved us from sin
and we will have eternal life with him.
That is why it is sometimes called the
Good News or Gospel of Jesus.
It is great news to know that there is
nothing we can do that will make God
love us more and nothing we can do that
will make God love us less than he
already does. If you have time the
video below from SaddleBack Kids tells us
how, when Jesus came to live on earth
he did a lot of the things we do, like
resting and playing. He also knew rest
was important and that he needed to
spend alone time with God. He
knew this was one way he could be
reminded of God's love. It is the same
for us too....
rest allows a weary soul to receive.
