Weekend of Children's Sabbath, October 16-18 The fact is, it was our suffering he took on himself; he bore our pain. But we thought that God was punishing him, that God was beating him for something he did. But he was being punished for what we did. He was crushed because of our guilt. He took the punishment we deserved, and this brought us peace. We were healed because of his pain. -Isaiah 53:4-5
Do you have a kid you know who is bullied? How do we help those kids who are in pain?
"It's tough when you know anyone is in pain - but especially when it is children. They don't always have the vocabulary to explain why they are upset and they aren't old enough to understand that this hurt is not caused by something they did.
Dear God - please help me learn to spot the signs of hurt and guide me to find the ways to help."
