Have you ever thought “Does anyone REALLY love me?” Does anyone REALLY care for me?” For many who have lost a job, lost a home or a loved one these questions surface almost daily in their minds. Recently someone who lost a job related they didn’t leave their house for a month as they were sure no one wanted them, no one cared, their whole world fell apart.

For a preschooler, they too wonder who will take care of me if my parents are gone? They hear of friends whose parent have died, or parents who have divorced, or had to move because of job loss. It is so important to help your preschooler know God loves you. You are His child and even if earthly parents are not there, He will always be there to care for them.

To help your child know of God’s great love for them take a walk in the outdoors. Point out the flowers, and ask who feeds the flowers, who cloths them? God does!! He gives them rain to grow and clothes them in beautiful colors. Next point out a bird and ask who feeds the birds, who give them clothes to keep them warm? God provides the worms to feed them and feathers to keep them warm.

If God takes care of all the creatures on the earth, will He not take care of His children? God tells us to not worry about our life-what we will eat or drink or about what we will wear. He is our God, our provider and we are His children. He loves and cares for us!!

This is the month that we need to think about all that God has blessed us with. Help your child make a list of all that God has given to show He loves them (home, food, clothing, parents, friends, health, and most of all His only son Jesus).

The Bible Story for this weekend is from Matthew 6:25-34. God tells us not to worry, but to trust in Him! He tells us to” seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33

Help your child learn this month’s Bible memory verse “My God will meet all your needs.” Philippians 4:19 This is a great opportunity to talk about basic needs versus wants. Then ask how we can be a blessing to others by helping to meet their needs. God wants us to be part of His plan to meet the needs of all His children. If your child received a RICE BOWL, please talk about how they can help meet the needs of orphaned children who have so little to eat. Rice Bowls need to be returned to Cove Kids on November 13-14th weekend.
