One of the most important foundations we can lay for our children to build upon is the truth that God made them. He made them in His image, and He also made them wonderfully unique. When children understand these powerful concepts, they see how important they really are to God. Knowing they are made and loved by God will motivate them to respect themselves and others!
In this week’s Bible story, we learned that respecting ourselves is one way we can honor God.
Cuddle and pray, “Dear God, Help [child’s name] grow up respecting herself/himself because You made her/him. I know that begins with me. Help me to honor You with my body so I can be a good example. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
