Your child enjoys music and can perform simple hand motions. Sing “Jesus Loves Me” and make up some gestures your child can imitate.
Read John 9v6–11. Remind your child that Jesus was the only one who had the power to heal the blind man.
After reading the Scripture passage, discuss these thoughts together:
Why did Jesus heal the blind man? To show His power!
Discuss together what the blind man did after Jesus healed him.
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
Open a Bible and read Psalm 147v5a: “Great is our Lord and mighty in power.”
