April 2020 - Week 4 Elementary Parent Cue
WEEK FOUR
LUKE 24:13-35
On the Road to Emmaus
SAY THIS:
There's always more to
discover about God's plan.
REMEMBER THIS:
"Don’t do anything only to get ahead.
Don’t do it because you are proud.
Instead, be humble. Value others
more than yourselves."

PHILIPPIANS 2:3, NIrV
DO THIS:

 DRIVE TIME


Ask your child to help you see opportunities to let others go first while driving. Let someone ahead of you, let the next person go in the drive through, or show patience in traffic. While finding these opportunities, ask your child, "What is a way you can put someone first today?"
