What’s a two-minute devotion, you ask? We all want to awaken some spiritual thoughts in our kids’ brains before they head out to face the world at school, but if your house is anything like mine, mornings can be a total whirlwind. And so . . . enter the two-minute devotion! It’s a brief Bible-based discussion designed for school-aged kids, and you can talk about it in two to five minutes around the breakfast table before school. (And hey—there’s no law against doing these devotions later in the day, if your kids aren’t morning people!)
Guess Who Thinks You’re Awesome? (Psalm 71:5)
“You have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5).
Do you ever worry about what other kids think about you? Do you ever feel like you’re not as smart or pretty or fast or funny as other kids? Everyone feels that way sometimes—it’s called feeling insecure. Usually we get insecure when we start thinking about ourselves and comparing ourselves to other people. But guess what? Because you love God, you can be confident! God made you exactly the way he wanted you to be. He loves you and he likes you, and because of that, you can always feel confident. Even when other kids say or do mean things, God is there for you. You can walk around the school feeling great, knowing that the God who made the sky, the mountains and the oceans is watching over you and cheering you on.
