Many schools are becoming more and more diverse. It’s possible that the nations are represented in your child’s classroom. Though these students may have different cultures or backgrounds, they are still similar to your child in many ways. Encourage your child to reach out and befriend those who are different.
Before the school year begins, start praying regularly that God would show you an international family or someone different from you that does not know Jesus. Find ways to intentionally love on them and be their friend. Invite your new friend, or even their whole family, over for dinner. Make special welcome placemats for everyone with their name on them.
- How is your friend similar to you? How are they different?
- What are some ways your family can love your new friend(s)?
Pray that your new friend will love and follow Jesus.
