Devotionals Zone

Need to give a DEVOTIONAL at the next meeting or gathering?

Looking for a 'little something' to encourage someone, or re-focus a group?

These devotions are about children, children's ministry, or Christian living, but are primarily designed for adults rather than for use with kids, as most of the other ideas on the site are for direct ministry to children.

Have a nice devotional you have shared? Please share it here too!

Jesus offers this instruction to His disciples as though they really needed this clear word to remove any doubt about His attitude about children.
