Let Your Light Shine!

WHAT WE LEARNED
Today, the children learned about the time the Magi followed a bright star to find Jesus, and at the same time discovered how they can be bright stars for others to find Jesus today. When we let our light shine, by being good little boys and girls, and by choosing to do right instead of wrong, our neighbors, friends, schoolmates, and even perfect strangers can see how we are different. That difference is Jesus. (Scripture used: Matthew 2:1-12)

MEMORY VERSE

"Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will help him or her remember the verse and it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

SUGGESTED PARENT+CHILD ACTIVITY
Play a little game of flashlight tag with your child. Grab a few flashlights and pick a dark night. One of you can count to twenty while the other runs off to hide. When the person seeking the other turns on his or her flashlight, the one hiding must also turn on his or her flashlight. The hider must run to the base before the seeker tags them. The hider cannot run to the base until the seeker turns on his or her flashlight. Compare this game to how we are lights to a dark world. When we shine our light, we can show others the way to Jesus.

DAILY PRAYER
Dear Lord, You are the bright morning star, and worthy to be praised. Thank You lord for Your love. I love You. Help me now not to chase after things that do not last, but instead, let me find a lasting relationship with You. Amen.
