|Epiphany Kids and Friends |
|Luke 12:32-40 Adapted|
Once again, Jesus was talking to his disciples to encourage them.He said: “Don’t be afraid! God wants to give you the Kingdom! Sell everything you have and give the money to people who need it more than you. Make yourselves moneybags that will never wear out. You need to make sure that your treasure is safe in heaven, where thieves cannot steal it and moths cannot destroy it, because your heart will always be where your treasure is.
Be ready like children who wait for their friends to come over for a visit. As soon as they arrive, the children open the door and let their friends in and make their friend feel really welcome.
Be ready always, because you never know when the Son of God will come to visit.”
What is important to you, what do you treasure?
How do you look after what you treasure?
What does Jesus want us to treasure?
