Kids Devotional

kids devotional

A kid’s devotional is an effective way to teach your child God’s Word and the importance of daily time with God. Whether your child reads it or if you use the material for family devotions, you will be sharing age-appropriate lessons with your child.

Each kid’s devotional contains verses from the Bible, a corresponding lesson, and a sample prayer. An important aspect of each devotion is the emphasis on application.

Why is it important for kids to spend time with God? With devotions, kids can grow in their love for Him, and know His love for all of us. As parents, our goal each day is to expose our children to a variety of spiritual learning opportunities where we are able to incorporate God as the main focal point of our lives!

Do you run to get "first dibs" on the front seat of the car when piling in for carpool? How does it feel to be first in line when you are hot and thirsty? Jesus had some curious things to say about first and last.

In the Bible, two brothers asked Jesus for a big favor. They wanted special seats, one on the right and one on the left of Jesus’ throne after He was anointed King! They said, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory” (Mark 10:37).

The other disciples heard about it, and they were mad. Maybe they wanted the best seats, too! Jesus decided to gather them all together to talk about it. How did He answer them? Discover in Mark 10:42-45. Verse 45 says, “‘For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’” How did Jesus show His disciples to serve others?

In God's kingdom, the servant is the greatest.

How does Jesus want you to serve others? Here are some ideas!

In your neighborhood:

  • Rake leaves for elderly neighbors or help them with trash.


  • In the lunch line, let others go ahead of you instead of wanting to be first.
  • Help a friend with her backpack.


  • Do one of your chores before you are reminded.
  • Take out all the garbage in the house.
