Be Wise, My Son: 5×7″

May 16, 2016

_ccrl Be Wise My Son

Be wise, my son and make my heart rejoice.

Proverbs 27:11

Can children benefit from the example of Jesus? Doing what his Heavenly Father, Jehovah, asked him to do wasn’t always the easy option. How can Jesus be a perfect model for children and how can this protect them?

For the answers to these questions, please visit HERE and scroll down to paragraph 14, subheading, “A Model for Children”.

On JW.ORG, there are separate sections for Children and Teenagers, full of amazing, interactive content. There are illustrated Bible stories, picture activities, Bible character cards, family worship projects and much more.

The “Become Jehovah’s Friend” Caleb and Sophia videos are short and lots of fun, and teach Bible principles to young (and not so young!) children in a memorable way.

A quick way to find all 28 of them is to put Caleb and Sophia in the Search box on the top right of the Home page.

The Whiteboard Animation, “Beat a Bully Without Using Your Fists” is absolutely fabulous and one of my personal favourites.

In addition to the Teenagers section, there are the books, “Young People Ask: Answers That Work”, Volumes 1&2. If you go HERE, you can access these books, as well as other Young People Ask web content including many videos.Doodles076 copy_juno Apricot Nectar Papers 2 copy

Little Children: 5×7″

May 11, 2016

_ccrl Little Children

 People now began bringing him young children for him to touch them, but the disciples reprimanded them. At seeing this, Jesus was indignant and said to them: “Let the young children come to me; do not try to stop them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such ones.  Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a young child will by no means enter into it.”  And he took the children into his arms and began blessing them, laying his hands on them.

Mark 10:13-16

Being a good parent becomes ever more difficult in today’s complex world. But Jehovah, our Heavenly Father, doesn’t leave us without wise, practical advice. His word can help us discern the answers to questions such as; How does the myth of “quality time” hold up in the light of Bible principles? How will you protect your children from those who would harm them, such as sexual predators? How can Jesus’ example help you to discipline your children in love?

For the answers to these questions, please visit HERE and scroll down to paragraph 14, subheading, “A Perfect Example for Parents”.

There’s a rich resource on parenting on JW.ORG. Go towards the bottom of the Home page, select COUPLES AND PARENTS, then scroll down and click to expand PARENTS.

And very early on the first day of the week when the sun had risen, they came to the tomb. They were saying to one another: “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was very large. When they entered into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were stunned.

He said to them: “Do not be stunned. You are looking for Jesus the Naz·a·reneʹ who was executed on the stake. He was raised up. He is not here. Look, here is the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galʹi·lee. You will see him there, just as he told you.’” So when they came out, they fled from the tomb, trembling and overwhelmed with emotion. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were in fear.

Mark 16: 2-8

The next day, which was after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together before Pilate, saying: “Sir, we recall what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I am to be raised up.’ Therefore, command that the grave be made secure until the third day, so that his disciples may not come and steal him+ and say to the people, ‘He was raised up from the dead!’ Then this last deception will be worse than the first.”

Pilate said to them: “You may have a guard. Go make it as secure as you know how.” So they went and made the grave secure by sealing the stone and posting a guard.

Matthew 27: 62-66

So when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magʹda·lene, Mary+ the mother of James, and Sa·loʹme bought spices in order to come and apply them to his body.

At that Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released Bar·abʹbas to them; and after having Jesus whipped he handed him over to be executed on the stake.

The soldiers now led him off into the courtyard, that is, into the governor’s residence, and they called the whole body of troops together. And they dressed him in purple and braided a crown of thorns and put it on him; and they began to call out to him: “Greetings,* you King of the Jews!” Also, they were hitting him on the head with a reed and spitting on him, and they got on their knees and bowed down to him. Finally, after they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple and put his outer garments on him. And they led him out to nail him to the stake. Also, they compelled into service a passerby, a certain Simon of Cy·reʹne, coming from the countryside, the father of Alexander and Ruʹfus, to carry his torture stake.

So they brought him to the place called Golʹgo·tha, which means, when translated, “Skull Place.” Here they tried to give him wine drugged with myrrh, but he would not take it. And they nailed him to the stake and distributed his outer garments by casting lots over them to decide who would take what. It was now the third hour, and they nailed him to the stake. And the inscription of the charge against him was written: “The King of the Jews.” Moreover, they put two robbers on stakes alongside him, one on his right and one on his left. And those passing by spoke abusively to him, shaking their head and saying: “Ha! You who would throw down the temple and build it in three days, save yourself by coming down off the torture stake.” In the same way also, the chief priests with the scribes were mocking him among themselves, saying: “Others he saved; himself he cannot save! Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down off the torture stake, so that we may see and believe.” Even those who were on stakes alongside him were reproaching him.

When it became the sixth hour, a darkness fell over all the land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour, Jesus called out with a loud voice: “Eʹli, Eʹli, laʹma sa·bach·thaʹni?” which means, when translated: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of those standing near, on hearing it, began to say: “See! He is calling E·liʹjah.” Then someone ran, soaked a sponge in sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink, saying: “Let him be! Let us see whether E·liʹjah comes to take him down.”  But Jesus let out a loud cry and expired. And the curtain of the sanctuary+ was torn in two from top to bottom. Now when the army officer who was standing by with him in view saw that he had expired under these circumstances, he said: “Certainly this man was God’s Son.”

Mark 15: 32-42

MEMORIAL OF JESUS’ DEATH

Today: After Sundown

_juno 5x7 Quilted Floral 6

On the first day of the Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus, saying: “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?” He said: “Go into the city to So-and-so and say to him, ‘The Teacher says: “My appointed time is near; I will celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your home.”’” So the disciples did as Jesus instructed them and prepared for the Passover.

Matthew 26: 17-29

And as they continued eating, he took a loaf, said a blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “Take it; this means my body.” And taking a cup, he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it. And he said to them: “This means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many.
