On Good Friday, I am reminded that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Who did Jesus die for?
Because of me.
For my sins.
Because he loved me.
We got this idea a few years ago from my friend, Wendy. Using a permanent red marker, make a red dot on the back of each hand. (If you do it on their palm, it washes off too easily.) Then, write your child's name over the marks.
Your kids can handle this detail. They can. And they will be even more in awe of what Jesus did for them on the cross.
One year, Jack insisted that I mark his feet, too. I love it when my kids remember the details of God's truth. "They put nails in his feet, too, Mama."
Throughout the day, ask your child, "Who did Jesus die for?" They can respond, "For me!" Then, rejoice and thank God for his amazing gift of grace.
