Jesus Calms the Storm
Lesson for the Week
Parents: Haven’t we all felt scared or overwhelmed at times? It’s important to talk about these feelings. In fact, it’s healthy to “Name it to Tame it” which means to say what you’re feeling out loud. We can encourage our children to say and pray, “Jesus, I feel worried, can You help me with ______?”
Let’s read about Jesus calming the storm in the New Testament book of Mark. We are reassured that our powerful God is in control over all things and He cares deeply for us.
Ask your child if they are worried about anything today. Use the coloring sheet included to write their worries on the waves. Post the sheet in your home and pray about it during the week. We know from 1 Peter 5:7 that Jesus wants us to cast all our anxiety on Him because He cares for us.
