You can celebrate even when you’re waiting.
We finish the month with Palm Sunday. By this time, God’s people had been waiting hundreds of years for God’s promises of a Savior to come true. In Matthew 21:1-11, we see that people were really starting to believe that Jesus was that Savior. God’s promises were finally coming true. So, when He entered Jerusalem on a donkey, just like the prophesy foretold, they celebrated and worshipped Jesus. Of course, this all turned out very different from what they expected, and they’d have to wait a bit longer to understand, but they could find joy because God was faithful.
You can celebrate even when you’re waiting. How we wait can show others how we trust God. Celebrating might feel like a strange way to wait. However, when we remember how much God loves us, that Jesus came to save us, that God will always be faithful, we can’t help but celebrate and have joy believing that God will do the same in the future. We pray that your child will learn how to celebrate God while they wait.
