July 2019 - Week 2 Preschool Parent Cue

     JULY

      2019

WEEK TWO

ACTS 12:1-19
Peter's friends faithfully pray for him when he is put in jail for telling people about Jesus.

SAY THIS:

Who gives you the power
to do everything?

Jesus gives me the power
to do everything.
DO THIS:

DRIVE TIME


When you get in the car, ask your child, "What gives the car power?" As you drive, continue asking your child what gives things power (radio, cell phone, street lights, anything you see along the way). Tell your child, "When Jesus is our friend, He gives us the power to love people the way He loves us. Jesus gives us the power to do everything!"

REMEMBER THIS:
"I can do everything by the power of Christ."
Philippians 4:13, NIrV
BASIC TRUTH: JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER

Excerpted from Intentional Parenting



Have the words “Because I said so” ever come out of your mouth? This “quick fix” answer we sometimes give our kids when they ask “Why?” can ultimately undermine our authority as parents. “Because I said so” was never a satisfying answer when you were a kid; it’s no different now that you’re the parent. When it comes to guiding and teaching our kids, “do as I do” is far more effective than “do as I say.”

Whether we admit it or not, our lives are on display 24/ 7. Our children are always watching and learning from us—from both our positive and negative characteristics and behaviors. Intentional parents understand this reality and think about the messages their actions are sending. Actions always speak louder than words . . .
