Best Verse: Psalm 79:13 “So we Your people and the sheep of Your pasture will give thanks to You forever; to all generations we will tell of Your praise.”
I am not sure how I feel about being called His sheep. After all, sheep aren’t the smartest critters. But then again, neither am I. I need a shepherd. I need someone to lead me beside still waters. I need someone to take me to the grazing fields. I need someone to watch over me and protect me from my enemies. I guess I am a sheep. LOL.
And my job as a sheep is to give thanks to Him forever and tell all generations about His praise. Sheep talk to sheep, right? So, I have to talk to other people. I have to tell others about how great my shepherd is. I will tell them how much He loves me. I can praise Him and thank Him so that the other generations see and hear me.
Get your children to make a list of all the things they are thankful for. Let it be their list. When they are done, tape it to the mirror in the bathroom or their bedroom. Let it be a daily reminder of God’s faithfulness. Teach them to share these “blessings” with others, too.
Have them make a list of people they want to share Jesus with. This could be family, friends or someone they just met. Help them figure out how to do that. Better yet, let them watch YOU share with someone on YOUR list. Yes, you need a list, too. You need to be sharing so they will see how it’s done.
Aren’t you excited to tell someone good news you have received? Then why wouldn’t you tell them about the greatest news? Tell them about Jesus. Tell them about His greatness. Tell them how much He loves them and wants them to be part of His flock of sheep.
Lord, place people in my path today with whom I can share about You. Let me be Your mouthpiece. Give me the words You want me to share.
