This Month’s Life App:

What you do today can change the world around you.

Let It Go Patience

Principle | Proverbs 15:18

In week four, we spend time discovering more about Proverbs 15:18. Waiting can be the worst! But something Solomon wrote in Proverbs can help us remember why patience is so important. A person with a bad temper stirs up conflict. But a person who is patient calms things down, (NIrV). When we have to wait, it’s important not to let impatience get the best of us. We can trust God to give us the strength to have patience and keep our cool.

Love others because God loves you.

Bottom Line

Be patient with each other.

We all face moments where we’ll find it difficult to have patience. From waiting in line to get a seat at your favorite restaurant to sitting in construction traffic on your way to vacation, how can you have patience when you want to get a move on? We pray that kids will start with prayer and ask God for help. God can give us patience in any situation!

Message to Parents

You’ve possibly heard it said, “Children spell love, T-I-M-E”. It’s true and I’ve seen it first hand. I know when I hang with Elijah for 20 or 30 minutes cuddling, reading, or playing a board game before his sister wakes up, he’s good to go for the rest of the day. I mean, no melt-downs and way less whining. When I think about it. I really don’t have the time NOT to spend it with him. Who does? Who has time for those meltdowns? They usually happen when we are running late or getting on a phone call anyway. I want to encourage you to spend a little extra TIME with your kiddos this week. And here are a few more tips that might help you bond with your little ones.
