Hi Journey Kids parents!

There was a lot to be sad about in Jeremiah’s day. The people of Israel had turned against God and were about to experience the consequences of their rebellion. Jeremiah – God’s prophet – had over and over again tried to get through to the people. He tried to convince them to turn from their sin and back to God, but they wouldn’t listen. The weight of Jeremiah’s heartbreak would have been crushing, but God drew near to strengthen and comfort him.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Jeremiah and the Fall of Judah

Big Idea: God is close to people with broken hearts, so we can find comfort in Him when we’re sad.

Memory Verse: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

God is still near the brokenhearted. Whatever you are facing today – however crushing the weight of sadness – God is near. He is ready to give you strength and comfort. So, go to Him. Draw near to God. He is already drawing near to you.
