Scripture Verse Week 2
"For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
he will lead them to springs of living water.’[a]
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’[b]” Revelation 7:17
The entire verse is shown here, but younger children can focus on part b, and we parents and older students (grades 3+) will learn the entire verse.
To help solidify the concept you might spend some time at a meal discussing...
"What sorts of things make us cry?"
"Do you think there will be crying in heaven? Why or Why not?"
Talk with your kids that in heaven God will wipe away ALL of our tears...there will be no more suffering or pain, we will truly live happily ever after. How does that make them feel? Is it something that is easy or hard to believe?
