Isn’t it wonderful that, in His Word, God has:
- Something to see – what does the text say
- Something to understand – what does it mean
- Something to apply – what does it mean to me
- Something to praise – for what are you thankful

(4) Pre-readers (in the translation of your choice, quoted below from the NLT
1 Corinthians 2:9
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
If you want something shorter for the very young ones, you could emphasize the main point with, “God makes good things for those who love him”.
To Parents: Look for Luke Burrow’s devotional, emailed each Sunday and based on these verses, which will help you tell God’s Story of Everything. This is sent on an “opt in” basis so you must let us know you wish to receive it. Responding affirmatively to this email will do that.
