God’s Image

5/20/2022
Bible Reading: Genesis 1:26-27; Exodus 20:4 "Grandma, what does 'graven image' mean?" Sapphire asked as she paged through her grandmother's Bible. "One of the Ten Commandments says not to make any graven images. I've read that verse before, but I don't think my Bible says it like that." "A graven image is a statue or other physical likeness that people make out of something like gold, silver, or stone to worship," said Grandma. "They were very common in the nations around Israel during...

The Safe

Bible Reading: Proverbs 2:1-8 "Uncle Frank is Dad's uncle, right?" asked Ben as his mom unlocked the safe in Uncle Frank's house and took a stack of yellowed papers from it. "That's right," said Mom. She set aside one paper. "This has information the hospital needs for Uncle Frank's records." She put the other papers back in the safe and locked it. Then they left and went to the hospital.

Rubbed the Wrong Way

5/17/2022
Bible Reading: Psalm 32:1-5 A cat's loud meow came from the living room--again and again. "Ava," called Mom, "what are you doing to Luna?" Not waiting for an answer, she left her work in the office and went to investigate. "Why did Luna yowl like that?" she asked as she walked into the room. "I was just petting her," said Ava. "When Luna turned around to face the other way, I didn't change the direction I was stroking her, so I was rubbing her fur opposite from the way it naturally lays."...

Not Alone

5/16/2022
Bible Reading: Matthew 18:1-3; Mark 10:13-16 I wish Mom wouldn't leave me home alone when she goes out at night, thought Ivy as she huddled under the ragged sheet on her bed. She felt her stomach rumble. Her mother had told her to find herself something to eat, but there hadn't been much in the cupboard other than a few crackers and peanut butter. Ivy hugged Ruffles, her teddy bear, close. "I'm so glad I got you back," she whispered. Ruffles was very old and worn, and Ivy's mother had...

He jumped in delight when they scored but collapsed on the sofa when they missed a shot at the basket. "They're doing awful," Marco said in disgust when his team dropped several points...

A Special Diet

5/14/2022
Bible Reading: Romans 14:1-7, 22-23 "Mom, how come Christians have such different ideas about right and wrong?" asked Avery one day. "You and Dad won't let us watch some movies that Stella's parents think are okay. And Naomi says her family avoids doing certain things on Sunday that we do almost every Sunday. Why can't Christians agree on what's right and what's wrong?" "There isn't a simple answer to that, but…" Mom hesitated. "We're having Uncle Paul and Aunt Sue over for dinner tonight,...

Several weeks later, when Asher got home from school, his mom told him Grandpa had been taken to the hospital. "We'll go see him after dinner," Mom said, "but you...

I can't wait! There will be prizes and everything." Grandpa chuckled. "You'd better slow down, or you'll be worn out before the race starts," he teased. "If you're serious about running, it would be a good idea to cut down on junk foods. I ran a few races in my college days, and I remember the...

Just Like Clockwork

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:14-22 Kaya walked into the living room and slumped onto the couch. Grandpa looked up from his work on the grandfather clock and laid aside a tool.

It's just that when the Millers came to church last Sunday, they were talking about all the amazing things they've seen God do in Brazil. After the service, I went up to them and explained that I wanted to help them with their missions...

Bible Reading: 1 John 4:7-11, 20-21 "Can you think of anyone who needs a friend?" Abby's Sunday school teacher asked the class. "During His time on earth, Jesus sought out those who were rejected or ignored by others so they would know they were loved by God. When we reach out to those who are lonely, we're showing them the love of Jesus, who sacrificed His life so we could have a place in His family. Who can you show God's love to this week who might be feeling lonely?" Abby tried to...

"It just sounded like fun to get up and give a demonstration!" All was quiet for a moment. Then Ava snapped her fingers....

Bible Reading: Psalm 68:3-4, 32-35 What pet should I get? Eli wondered. His parents had agreed that he could have either a bird or a guinea pig if he would care for it properly. He thought about getting a bird. It would be cool to have a pet that sings, but he could hold a guinea pig and play with it. It was a hard decision, but Eli finally decided on a guinea pig and named it Rascal. Each day, Eli checked Rascal's food and water and spent time petting him. "I'm glad I got Rascal! He's fun...

Bible Reading: Matthew 5:14-16; John 8:12 Up…up…up…Aiden and his classmates were getting tired as they followed the lighthouse caretaker.

But he mentioned you often have a bad attitude in class." "Mr. Harnetty is too hard! He assigned a project over the weekend. It's so unfair!" Jake...
