Week 2 | November 22

We know from the gospels, Jesus loved children and valued spending time with them. Where some might view children as powerless, underdeveloped, and weak, God has made it abundantly clear that children play significant roles in kingdom building.  This week we’ll look into the power of a child’s praise and how believers, regardless of age, are encouraged to adopt the heart and mind of a child.

  1. Why did Jesus use a child to show them what being "the greatest" means?
  2. In what ways is a child humble?
  3. In what ways does a child express pure faith or dependence on others?
  4. Recall a time you thought of someone else before yourself. What motivated you?
  5. How can you develop or maintain a wide-eyed-wonder approach to heaven?
