and He heals him.

and He does.

that is an outcast from society.

SAY THIS:Who do you need? I need Jesus.
REMEMBER THIS:“You are everything I need." Psalm 119:57, NIrV
BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
When you go into your child's room this month, say, "Good morning! Do you know we have everything we need for a great day? We sure do! We have Jesus, and Jesus is all we need!"
As you drive, ask your child to tell you about his/her favorite foods. Talk about your favorites too. Briefly discuss how some children around the world only get one meal per day because they don't always have money for food. When children don't have enough food, their bodies won't grow big and strong. We can help them! What kinds of foods would you like to give to help them have food to eat?
Cuddle with your child and pray, “Dear God, thank You for giving me everything I need. Thank You for the food we got to enjoy today. Please help us to help those who don’t have enough food to eat. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
As you bathe your child, play a game where you give a scenario and your child tells you what is needed in that scenario. Example: You want to build a block tower. What do you need? (blocks) You are hungry. What do you need? (food) You're walking outside and it starts raining. What do you need? (umbrella) You need someone to be your friend forever. Who do you need? (Jesus)
