Love Dare for Elementary Students - Day Number 31

Day Number 31 - Love your parents

Look up
Colossians 3:20-21 in your bible.

Pray about Colossians 3:20-21 and ask God what he is saying to you through the scripture.

Read the following: Have you ever been mad at your parents because they made you do something you didn't want to do? Maybe you feel like your parents have mistreated you and at that moment you feel like you don't love them. Or maybe, it's much more than just one incident, have your parents gotten a divorce and you only live with one parent right now? When these things happen, it's hard to feel love for our parents. Scripture tells us, very plainly, that we should love our parents because it pleases the Lord.

Your Challenge: Today, simply stop what you are doing and go tell your parents that you love them. Give them a big hug and tell them you love them because the bible says that loving them pleases God.

In Christ,
- Steve
