“Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.” Revelation 3:2 NIV
A beautiful long view of God’s marvelous created world!
When I started writing these devotions for kids (for you!) two years ago, I wrote them because I felt that was what God wanted me to do. I look at my writing as kind of my good deed for others. I hope that I give you encouragement and inspiration and share the love of God and Jesus.
Our verse for this week talks about how our deeds, or things we do for God to help others, are unfinished. We all have more to do. Sometimes our good deeds can be helping someone, or sharing the love of Jesus, or even just listening when someone needs to talk about a problem. Everyone of us can do a good deed for someone else, and yes, even kids!
Good Deeds Every Day!
What good deeds can I do this week?
So of God’s love, others get a peek?
On Monday, Mrs. Wilson, my teacher was stressed.
So I made her a card that said she was blessed!
On Tuesday, Mom was feeling a little bit sick.
So I folded the clothes and did the dishes quick!
On Wednesday my friend, Tommy, was feeling sad.
So we ate lunch and I listened and now we’re both glad!
On Thursday, Dad was working late and got home tired.
So I hugged him and explained it was him I admired!
On Friday, our older neighbor, needed to mail a letter.
So I took it to the mailbox and dropped it in, all better.
On Saturday, Jess fell and scraped her knee.
So I ran, got a band aid and now she’s all smiley!
On Sunday, as we knelt down to pray,
I thanked God for helping me finish a good deed each day!
This week try to do some good deeds for people you know and shine the love of God as you help others.
Talk to your parents about how you’ve helped someone else. And ask them how they have helped others see God’s love.
Blessings to each and everyone as you praise God by doing good deeds for others!
