Do you ever play with building blocks? It’s fun. You can stack ‘em up and make a house, or a fort, or a skyscraper. Some blocks even have letters and colors on them so you can make words and pictures. Did you know grownups play with building blocks, too? It’s true. The blocks they use are a lot bigger. And there’s always one block they call the cornerstone. It’s the block all the rest of the blocks depend on to stay in place. There’s a place in the Bible that says Jesus is your chief cornerstone. That’s because…
…Jesus is the only solid rock you can trust to never fall or fail.
I bet your mom or dad or the person helping you read this will also help you look up cornerstone. Other words that mean the same thing are:
Imagine if you used Jesus’ name in sentences with those words. It would look like this:
Jesus is the backbone of our family.
Jesus is the center of attention in our house.
Jesus is the heart of God’s love for the world.
That’s how you can think of Him when you think about Jesus being your chief cornerstone. That’s pretty easy, isn’t it? Can you think of other ways to show how important Jesus is to us? When you do, send them to me. And I’ll share them with others. Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
Jesus is the one true cornerstone,
The center of my love and my backbone.
He holds me up in grace. His light shines on my face.
He’s in my heart. I’ll never be alone.
