Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
This is the fifth book of children's sermons in The New Brown Bag series and is designed for clergy and lay leaders to use in preaching to children from kindergarten through upper-elementary school.
This creative children's sermon resource features masterpieces of visual arts such as drawings, paintings, sculpture, woodcuts, and more from the Imaging the Word poster series (volumes 1, 2, 3). These artworks are often of contemporary, ordinary life. These are the focus of creative interpretations with a faithful message. A piece of art relates to each sermon, and each sermon highlights special days and holidays in the church year.
