The Hairs on Your Head

In Matthew, chapter 10, it says, “The very hairs on your head are all numbered” (v. 30 NLT). God knows how many hairs each one of you have on your head. That’s a pretty small detail, isn’t it? Your family and friends know a lot about you, both good and bad, and they love you so much for who you are. There’s no one in the whole world like you. God knows even more about us; every thought, every wish; and he loves us more than we can imagine.

Following the Shepherd’s Voice

How many of you answer the telephone in your home? (Let kids raise their hands.) Now, tell me this: how many of you have answered the phone and guessed who was calling, just by his or her voice—before the person on the other end told you who it was? Are you good at recognizing voices? (Let kids respond.) If we hear a voice that we’ve

Filling the Need

Pentecost Proper 12 From “Sitting on the Rainbow” Artwork by Elsa Ingulsrud Scripture Reference: John 6:1-21

If it was a hot day and I was really, really thirsty, what would be the best thing for me: a chocolate milkshake or a glass of water? (Let children respond.) I would need water. After I had gotten my water, I might want a milkshake. But if I were very thirsty, plain water would be the best thing for me. What if I were starting school at a
