God is sovereign over all, but he doesn’t show off his power or use it in wrong ways. He is a good King with a good heart and his goodness overflows to all who are a part of his kingdom. There are so many benefits to having God as King!
Children need to understand that God has the right to be in charge because he is the creator. They need to see how God’s kingdom differs from earthly kingdoms. Once these truths fill their hearts and minds, they can show others what God’s kingdom is like! They can ask God for his kingdom to come and to be seen in the people and places around them. This is the goal of this book!
The daily and weekly activities in this devotional are designed to help children relate to God as King and reveal him to those around them.
