Children's Object Sermon, 1/30/2011

Today's Gospel is from Matthew, and focuses on the Beatitudes.  All this begs the question:  "What do you want to B like?"

Jesus gives us an opportunity to show this to others daily.   When we have the choice to interact with others, we may B kind or we may B judgemental.  We may B stewards of the resources God gives us to use, or we may B greedy, using more than our fair share.

God doesn't expect us to B perfect, but he expects us to model to others the Love Christ shows us.   Be with these children, Lord, and help them show the best of themselves to others.  Amen.
