TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a boy’; for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you.” (Jeremiah 1:4-7)
Jeremiah has been entrusted with a monumental prophetic task. But alas, how could one so young and inexperienced possibly fulfill such a role? If only such excuses worked with God…
- What evidence have you seen that God remains faithful to people today, despite people’s inability to remain faithful to God?
- When you were a child, what did you believe you would do to make the world a better place? What can you do now to make the world a better place?
- For the littles: What can you do better than an adult?
PRAY: O Lord, you desire just actions and not words alone. Grant us the strength to walk our talk, and prove faithful followers of the Lord of justice, Jesus Christ. Amen.
BLESS: May God trust you like God trusts a child. Amen.
