April 2020 - Week 1 Elementary Parent Cue
WEEK ONE
MATTHEW 26:36-56
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
SAY THIS:
Put others first.
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:

 MORNING TIME


Create a humility jar for this month and write, "put others first" on your jar as a reminder. Pick any item you would want to add; such as, pom poms, cotton balls, or M&M's. Anytime you see a family member put another family member or friend first, add one item to the jar. See if you can fill the jar by the end of the month and then celebrate with a special treat.
