Wednesday

Word Filled Wednesday

I had the privelege of teaching "my" 3 year-old class sunday school this past weekend. The theme this month is "Jesus wants us to believe in Him". One of the suggestions for an activity was to make the above poster. It was great beacuse we needed some new "art" on our wall.

We were talking about when Jesus appeared to His disciples, but Thomas wasn't there, and he wouldn't believe until he saw Jesus for himself. And as the verse says... "see My hands..."

My helper pointed out that as the kids were making their hand prints on the poster, there was paint "missing" in the middle of their hands. Almost every print had a hole in the center. We were amazed at this discovery and were very excited to teach the children about the hole left in Jesus hand and how when he appeared to Thomas, he showed him His hands.

What an awesome reminder it was of the sacrifice Jesus made for us!

I have a 3 year old son and I learn so much through the things he does and says, things that I should "know" It's such an amazing gift to be able to learn from the hearts and minds of little children.
Great WFW
