Peace in Safety


How can you explain the peace that passes all understanding to your children?


Talk with your family about what things keep you safe every day? Being safe gives a feeling of peace. Thank God for things that keep you safe—seat belts, locks on doors, parents, police, fire fighters and even smoke alarms.


Who or what might scream if you burn your toast or oatmeal? (You, your mom or dad, and the smoke alarm)


In the old days, people were warned of a fire when someone in the street twirled a wooden rattle. People who were asleep, however, sometimes didn't hear the rattle. Now houses and other buildings have small plastic boxes with batteries that warn when there is a fire. You can sleep peacefully without worrying you won't hear a rattle in the street. God gives you an even better kind of peace that helps you feel safe all the time. Jesus said in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."


- What things are you afraid of?

- When you're scared, how can you remember that God wants to give you His peace?

- How can you enjoy more of God's peace today?
