Background Scripture: Matthew 6:25-34
Memory verses: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV
Not long before the holiday season, Nicole's house burnt down. As Nicole watched the final pieces become ash, tears ran down her face. Then, she sobbed aloud, "We lost everything!"
Nicole's mom turned to her, hugged her, and said, "No we did not lose everything. We still have what's most important to us. Let us be thankful to God for this."
Later, as Nicole thought about what her mom said, she silently prayed. She thanked God for saving her and her family. She thanked God for the love they were receiving from family and friends already. She thanked God for their faith in him.
Thought: The most important things in life cannot be bought or replaced.
Prayer: Father God, when bad things happen in life, life can be hard, yet let us have an attitude of thankfulness and remember what you have given us. This we pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
Mission Challenge: Give an item of need to a family, who has been victims of a fire.
