Good morning girls and boys. Let’s start with a little riddle today. Here goes. A teacher asked a ten-year old boy in class, “Tommy, can you name one important thing that we have here today that we didn’t have, say, 12 years ago?” Tommy thought for a moment and then said, “Me!” Well boys and girls the teacher was actually thinking of the new computer that they had just gotten in the classroom but Tommy was absolutely right! He and all of the other children in the room were more important than that computer. And the teacher agreed with little Tommy.

Boys and girls. Let’s all try to think about one important teacher that you have had in school. Maybe this teacher was especially kind or helpful to you. Maybe this teacher gave you extra attention when you were having trouble learning something. Or maybe this teacher told you how great you were when when you did an especially good job with your lessons. Okay, are you all thinking of a particular teacher? Great. Besides your parents and the rest of your family teachers are maybe the most important people in your lives right now. They are so important because they care about you and want you to learn and grow into the beautiful person God intended you to be. And guess what boys and girls? All of us have one teacher above all others who really is the greatest. No matter how old you are He is Number One. And you know who that teacher is, boys and girls? That teacher is Jesus. And by His many examples in our Holy Bile Jesus has given us the instructions we need to grow into the beautiful persons that God intended us to be.

Good morning girls and boys. If you watch the news programs at night with your parents you know that there is a lot of fighting going on right now in different places around the world. We all pray for the day when people everywhere will be able to settle their differences by talking, instead of fighting. And of course that is what Jesus wants for us — to live peacefully together. We read in our Bibles today that Jesus said to his followers, “Peace Be with you” (John 20:20). Of course Jesus was a man of peace. Of course Jesus wants all nations to live peacefully together. He wants all of God’s children to get along. But when he says, “Peace be with you,” he is not just talking about avoiding fights and quarrels. It’s not a kind of peace that you find outside in the world. No, instead it is the peace that comes from inside when you are filled up with the love of God. That is the peace that Jesus wishes for all of us. President Abraham Lincoln once said that people are as happy as they make up their minds to be. That’s true, isn’t it boys and girls? If we make up our minds to be grumpy, that’s what we’ll be. But if we make up our minds to think of all of the good things in our lives we will discover we have a lot to be happy about. And just the same way we can decide to let the love of Jesus fill our hearts with peace. Then we will want to share that love with others. And then, they too will have peace.

Boys and girls, this week, as you say your bedtime prayers, remember all of the children who live in places where they need peace. And pray also that the love of God will fill each of their hearts so they will know the peace that Jesus offers to us all.

Good morning boys and girls. Today we are going to talk about the word “Salvation.” Maybe you have heard people talking about being “saved.” What does it mean to be “saved?” To be saved is to have what Jesus called Eternal Life. And Eternal life is to be with God, Jesus said. And we have learned that by doing God’s Will, by doing the things that are expected of us we are with God. You see boys and girls Eternal Life is being with God right here and right now!

I would like to share a little poem about Eternal Life with you now. It goes like this:
I have only just a minute, only sixty
seconds in it.
Didn’t seek it, didn’t choose it, but it’s up
to me to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it, give account if
I abuse it.
Just a tiny little minute, but eternity is in it!

That says it all boys and girls! We must use our time, right this very minute to do the work that is expected of us. Like, caring, and sharing, and listening with our heart and most of all, loving one another. And when we do this we will be filled with the peace of Jesus. The more we do this the closer we are to God. And that means the closer we are to salvation.

Good morning girls and boys. This morning I want all of us to pretend that we are chefs in a restaurant and we are planning our menus. Let’s also pretend that our restaurant serves only healthy nutritious meals. Let’s start with breakfast. We have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives us the energy we will need throughout the day to do our good works. How about fruit juice, cantaloupe and toast for breakfast? That’s a healthy start to the day. Next there is lunch, the second most important meal for the day because it gives us a lift when we are beginning to run out of energy. How about a turkey sandwich, an apple, some carrot sticks and a glass of milk? That’s a healthy mid-day meal. Now comes dinner. Let’s plan baked chicken, peas and rice. That sounds like a delicious and healthy dinner doesn’t it boys and girls? And here comes the best part. Desert! How about splurging a little? Maybe a slice of apple pie or some ice cream? That sounds great doesn’t it boys and girls?

Now I want you think about another kind of nourishment. Our spiritual nourishment. Jesus has been called the Bread of Life. He is always there, right by our side to fill us up with His nourishing love. His love gives us the energy we need throughout the day to do His good works. And we already know where to find the recipes to provide for all of our spiritual nourishment. That’s right — right here in the best recipe book ever for healthy living — our Holy Bibles. And our recipe book gives us the greatest spiritual desert of all, which is Jesus, who is the Bread of Life.

Good morning girls and boys. Will those of you who are perfect please raise your hand? I don’t see any hands. Isn’t anyone here perfect? Of course not! None of us is perfect, not even me! Especially not me! You see the older you get the more you know you are not perfect. I know that there are many things that I can do better. We all can. You see boys and girls, all of us sin. We all have done things that we know we shouldn’t do. But as long as we say we are sorry and try to do better we know God will be there to forgive us.

We read today in our Bibles that Jesus said, “I have come to call the sinners.” What does He mean boys and girls? Does He mean that He is only there when we sin? Of course not. You already know that He is always right there by your side — whenever you need Him.

We need Him most when we have strayed from His footsteps and are not following His examples. We need Him most when we are not sharing, and caring, and listening and helping others. We need Him most when we are not loving one another as He has asked us to.

Boys and girls, no one is perfect. But we do have the perfect example of how to live the way God intends us to live. The perfect example is Jesus.
