Motion :: Week of February 15

Drama. Relationship drama. Gulp! But don’t worry! We’re learning how to deal with drama. Each week, we’ll see how Colossians 3:13-14 offers us a path to peace when drama tries to bring division into our friendships, “more-than-friends” relationships, and families.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Colossians 3:13-14 to learn that loving others the way Jesus loves them means focusing our attention on them instead of ourselves.

The foundation of EVERY strong relationship — no matter what kind of relationship it is — is love. We have to choose to love others unselfishly. Most of the time, we naturally think of ourselves first. We worry about what other people think about us or how we look. We focus on ourselves. Loving others the way Jesus loves them means we stop worrying about the attention we’re getting and focus our attention on others. When we’re ready to put loving someone else ahead of our own preferences and feelings, we’re prepared to avoid relationship drama.

At bedtime this week, read Colossians 3:13-14 and pray together. Ask God to help your child learn to clothe themselves in God’s love so they’ll understand their true worth. Pray they’ll never look for attention or value in anyone other than their heavenly Father.

Drama. Relationship drama. Gulp! But don’t worry! We’re learning how to deal with drama. Each week, we’ll see how Colossians 3:13-14 offers us a path to peace when drama tries to bring division into our friendships, “more-than-friends” relationships, and families.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Colossians 3:13-14 to learn that we should be patient with others, and be ready to offer them forgiveness when they ask.

We all make wrong choices sometimes, which means we all need forgiveness. If we ask God for forgiveness, He always gives it — no matter what. Colossians 3:13 tells us we should forgive others in the same way. This verse DOESN’T say that we should let people treat us poorly. But it does say that we should be patient with people, and we should be ready to offer forgiveness when they ask.

At bedtime this week, read Colossians 3:13-14 and pray together. Ask God to help your child identify and develop relationships with great friends. Pray they’ll have the strength and maturity to extend forgiveness and patience.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, to learn that life is better when we go through it together.

When we work together, we’re able to get more done, and we actually experience God’s presence better together. Praying together and reading God’s Word with other Christians can be even more meaningful than doing it alone.

At bedtime this week, read Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 and pray together. Ask God to help your child listen to the right messages. Pray they’ll learn the importance of experiencing life with others and that they’ll surround themselves with godly people.
