Parents, in today’s Bible story your child learned that Jesus has power to meet people’s needs. Jesus healed a man who had been born blind. Jesus displayed the kingdom of God by His power to help people.
“Consider the example of Jesus healing the blind man in John 9. This man had spent his entire life in darkness, and his misery had no comfort. His blindness brought shame. He couldn’t get a job or volunteer in God’s temple. All he could do was sit and beg.” Read more about “Three Kinds of Shame” by Peter Krol here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/three-kinds-of-shame/
Today our Daily Bible Reading guides us to the end of a prayer from Paul to the Gentiles. What a blessing it is over the church, and over you.

Life would be simpler if we didn’t have to think about paying bills or taxes, right? Or, at least if we had more money, we wouldn’t worry or feel stressed. The apostle Paul knew this from experience, and he gave us the “secret” to being content regardless of our finances.
This evening at dinner read the Unit Verse out load together taking turns. Begin a conversation about how God revealed Himself to each of you this week. Make a point this next week to look for His miracles, wonders, and signs.
