Peace that passes understanding by orchardblog

In the deepest parts of us, peace is something we long for more than anything.

This month, Orchard Kid’s are learning that peace is proving that you care more about others than winning an argument.

God is the Creator and Provider of peace (Phil 4:7). He wants to bring peace to us. He even sent Jesus to make that possible. He wants us to live in peace too—to have it within our own hearts, with each other, and with Him. When we don’t have peace with others, anger grows and pushes out any room for peace. This week, help your kids recognize anger they may have toward themselves, others, or God, and teach them to make the choice to deal with it before it grows.

Kind of sad that this is the time of year when peace is hard to come by for a lot of people. Glad you are emphasizing this with the kids.
