The story of Jairus’ daughter, from Luke 8
Big Idea for Parents
Jesus is mending God’s broken world. In this account, Jesus brings the power of heaven to earth. He gives us a glimpse of what heaven will be like before we see it for ourselves: Chronic illness cured, the dead raised, and people living under great burdens and sadness are given joy. This devotion provides the opportunity to talk with your kids about how Jesus still mends God’s broken world today in big and small ways.
What do you think heaven will be like? Jesus brought the power of heaven to earth! One way to know the things that will happen in heaven is to learn what Jesus did on earth. Let’s read how he helped a little girl and a poor frail lady (read pages 214-220).
- Why did Jairus go look for Jesus?
- Why did the poor frail lady want to touch Jesus coat?
- Who could you pray for today that needs Jesus help?
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for showing us the power of heaven on earth through Jesus. Please help the people we know who are struggling, especially ___________________. Surround them with people who love them, and most of all remind them that you love them through Jesus. In his name we pray, Amen.
