CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Rejection at Nazareth
THEME: We need to come to Jesus with
hearts of wonder and worship.
SCRIPTURE: Mark 6:1-6
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids! Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study
God’s Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about the time when Jesus was
rejected in Nazareth. Nazareth was Jesus’ hometown. It was where He
grew up. Unfortunately it seemed that people were too familiar with Him to
see that He was the Son of God. Many people there refused to believe in
Him. It was so bad that the Bible says that He couldn’t do very many “mighty
works” because of their unbelief.
Sometimes we might be rejected because of our stand for Jesus. There may
be someone who laughs at us because we believe in Jesus. We need to
remember that Jesus loves us and will help us through these times. He wants
us to just trust in Him.
The section of scripture that we studied was Mark 6:1-6. The following
five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the theme for
Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you to review these
verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for the
application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool to help
in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may want to add your own ideas to these to make them
more age appropriate.
May the Lord bless you as you study His Word together!
