6. Words of Jesus

Words of Jesus: 180 Devotions and Prayers for Kids. Emily Biggers. 2020. 192 pages. [Source: Review copy] [Children's Book; Devotional; Christian Nonfiction]

First sentence: Of all the words ever spoken, the ones we should pay the most attention to are those spoken by our Savior, Jesus Christ! These words are often set apart with the color red on the pages of a Bible.

Words of Jesus is a children's devotional. There are 180 devotionals in all. If you've got school-age children, this might be just about right for reading before (or after) school. Each devotional begins with Scripture and ends with a prayer. The devotions are short--don't expect Spurgeon-sized sermonettes. But I think this devotional offers much food for thought. It didn't read as condescending to me, which is good.

The theme--if you haven't guessed it--are the words of Jesus. Scriptures are taken from Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Revelation.

I would recommend this one.
