Key Verse: “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies’”
(John 11:25)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: We Praise Jesus

(Open the bible and read to your child Psalm 118:19-29; Matthew 21:1-11) Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem was the high point of his earthly ministry. The scene was one that military heroes often received, with one main difference; Jesus rode in on a donkey, a sign of humility, rather than riding in on a horse, which fulfilled an Old Testament prophecy. The people who made up the crowd placed their cloaks as a carpet on the street, which was an act of honor and of submission. The people also used cut palm branches as a victory celebration for Jesus. This is known as Palm Sunday.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents:Share with your children one reason to praise Jesus today. Maybe you saw an amazing sunrise and can praise Jesus for his creation. Or perhaps you were reminded of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and want to tell him how thankful you are. Encourage your children to share at least one thing they can praise Jesus for as well. Encourage each other to look for one reason to praise Jesus every day this week.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
As a family, use household objects to show how you can praise Jesus. You can use the words from the Key Verse to get you started: power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and praise. Have each family member choose a word and then find an object in the house that represents that way to praise Jesus. For example, someone can bring a piggy bank and tell how we as a family can offer our wealth as praise to Jesus. After everyone finds an object and explains how it represents praise for Jesus, have everyone lift up their object. In unison say, “Jesus, you are worthy of praise! Thank you!”
