Shout Out (November 2020)
Let 'em know you're thankful.
Get in the habit of being grateful.
We finish up the month in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 and Exodus 12. In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul talks about taking time out to celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper. When we drink the cup and eat the bread, we celebrate that Jesus lived and died, and rose again to make us right with God. As we think about what Paul wrote, we’ll take time to remember that this celebration is rooted in another rescue story where God lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt.
Get in the habit of being grateful. People often focus on bad habits they need to stop. However, the best way to stop a bad habit is to replace it with a good one. Replace those sweets with healthy choices. Replace TV with exercise. Replace complaining with gratitude. We pray that your child will start to see that gratitude is a choice that God can help them make, especially when they remember all that Jesus did for us on the cross.
