This week has been VBS at our church, and I have been the Bible Storyteller for the 2K-5K classes. We have had a blast, and I have been so inspired by how eager these little ones are to drink up the stories from the Bible. We have been focusing on a different scripture each day, but the overall scripture for the week is:
Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
1 John 3:18
This verse has had such an impact on me in the context of VBS this week. It is so easy for me to talk the talk but not do such a great job walking the walk. I am very verbal and do not always find it easy to truly act on my lofty ideas. These young ones, though, haven't learned about hypocrisy yet. They want to really put into action what they have learned.
Our mission project for the week is collecting items for the Billy Hardee Home for Boys. It is amazing to see the joy they have in dropping soap, toothpaste, wash cloths, and money into giant tubs and knowing that what they are doing is making a difference for someone else.
These preschoolers have inspired me to put my love into action more often.
So, what verses have spoken to you this week? Post those verses on your own blog, along with how you see that God wants you to apply them in your life. Then, provide your link below so that we can drink from one another's wells of scripture.
