KINGDOM CHARACTER COMPLIMENTS
The words we speak and the words we allow to attach to or “label” our identities are powerful in affecting how we live our lives. The only words that should characterize our identities in Christ are words of Kingdom qualities and truth.
Using the Kingdom Character Flash Card set, write the 10 character names (compliments) on blank labels or sticky notes (or put sticky-back tape on plain paper strips). Pick one child at a time to receive a “compliment”. One by one have the other children take turns attaching a compliment to the receiving child. Each time a new compliment is “stuck” to the receiving child, read the name aloud along with the identity statements on that corresponding Kingdom Character Flash Card. (Or even better, have all children repeat the statements after you!) In the process, the receiving child will learn their Kingdom character and identity in Christ—their only true labels. At the same time, the other children will learn Kingdom Character and the power of their words through speaking life-giving “compliments”!

This morning was a mix of play and work, cloudy faces and happy faces. In the middle of folding Sunday and Monday’s laundry with the little tots I wondered, ‘what did Eve struggle with as a Mom?’ The first mom ever. No other moms before her or around her to compare herself with. No endless approaches to sort through. No moms saying you ‘should’ this or that. She was the first. Was she a crunchy perfect organic mom? Or was she okay with peanut butter and jelly sandwich days for her boys? Did she struggle to respond instead of react? Did she get tired of telling her kids for the 99th time to ‘chew with your mouth closed’? Or did she just let that one slide? Did she struggle to make the choice to stay present some days? Did she ever snap and tell Adam, ‘I need a break?’
