Next Parent Connection

Here is what we talked about at Middle School Youth last night:

Grapple Question:
What if God Says No?

Kids Learn:
God Knows What I Need

Dig Into the Bible:
2 Corinthians 12:1-10

It’s pretty disappointing for junior high kids when they really want something but
don’t get their way. (Hey, that’s still hard for most adults!) As a parent, you have to tell
your kids no sometimes—especially if it’s for their physical or emotional safety. Even if
your junior higher becomes upset, you know that you’re looking out for his or her best
God also has our best interests in mind. He can see the big picture, and he always
makes the right decision that will help us grow in our faith. Share with your junior
higher a time that God didn’t answer a prayer the way you’d hoped—and how you
grew from that experience.
