As Christians around the world prepare our hearts for Easter, we read the Gospels and remember the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Help your kids dig deeper in their faith with these writing prompts from the life of Christ.
1. A Servant’s Heart
Jesus demonstrated humility when He left heaven to be born in a stable, when He shared a meal with unpopular tax collectors, and when He washed His disciples’ feet. Make a list of ways you can show humility this week. Remember, humility is the character quality that helps us see other people as more important than ourselves.
2. Praying Always
Even when He was tired or busy, Jesus always made prayer His highest priority. Write a poem about different times and places you can pray. Your poem should be four to eight lines and each line must begin with a preposition (such as “around,” “before,” “between,” “under,” and “until”). Your preposition poem does not need to rhyme.
3. Consider the Lilies
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught that our Heavenly Father does not want us to spend our lives worrying. Write a paragraph about how worrying never solves problems.
4. Almighty King
When Jesus Christ rose to life after three days in the grave, He proved that He was no ordinary man—He is the King who rules over all. Make a word bank of nouns, adjectives, and verbs that remind of you of this King. (If you need a few ideas, read Isaiah 9:6-7.)
