What a powerful message in this passage for children! As parents, teachers, volunteers, tutors, friends, and other adults involved in the lives of children, this is the message we need to share with them. This is a message of empowerment!
When we are around a child who may be doubting their self-worth, is insecure in his or her abilities, or who has had their confidence shaken, we can lift them up with this message. Look at a child this week and remind them that with the guidance of God’s Spirit, they can dream big and do great things.
Our prayer today, O God, is that you remind us that even though we are “grown-ups,” we are your children and can do great things by your Spirit. Help us to share that with all children, no matter their ability, background, need, or education. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
