What We Learned About This Weekend...March 12/13, 2011

Critter Cove and Short Boarders
Birth - Kindergarten

Luke 17:11-19
Jesus heals 10 men of their leprosy. One comes back to praise God and tell Jesus "Thank You."  As you ride down the road this month, pray for people you see that may need Jesus to help them. You may see a broken down car, ambulance, homeless person, or fender bender. When we open our eyes, we can see needs all around us.

Like we said last week courage is being brave enough to do what you should do even when you’re afraid. Courage doesn’t mean we won’t be afraid, but it DOES mean not letting our fears keep us from doing what we should do. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are prime examples. Faced with a fiery retaliation, they refused to buckle under, saying that even if God didn’t rescue them from certain death, they still wouldn’t bend a knee to that fake god. That’s the kind of courage that can only come from God and the kind of courage He wants to build in each of us. Kids may never be faced with pressure to worship a gold idol, but there are plenty of other snags, pitfalls, and other dangers that can bring them to their knees. They need to know that the God who rescued Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego can help THEM do the right thing, too. And when they do the right thing, even when it’s not cool or popular, it can have a profound impact on others.
