MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus can do anything.
BIBLE VERSE: “With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Feeds Thousands | Mark 6:31-44
This month we are learning, “Jesus can do anything.“ No matter how impossible or hard a situation seems, we can remember that Jesus can do anything!
We will learn the story, “Jesus Feeds Thousands,” in Mark 6:31-44. Over 5,000 people came to see Jesus. He began to heal many people, and later the disciples realized they had no food to feed anyone. Jesus said, “See if anyone has any food.” They found one boy who had five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus took the food, gave thanks to God, and began to multiply the food. After everyone had eaten, there were 12 baskets of food left over. Jesus can do anything!
We made a Bible story mat to help us remember Jesus can do anything. Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your child:
- Who do you see in the picture? (Jesus, a little boy, and some other people)
- Why is Jesus holding bread and fish in his hands? (Because He is getting ready to feed everyone.)
Say, “That’s right! Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish and multiplied it to feed thousands of people! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything.”
