I’m always on the lookout for free short devotions for kids. Today I’m sharing a great resource for these short devotions from Compassion International’s Compassion Explorer Kids Magazine section of their website.
Each devotion answers a question your children may have about the world, about their emotions, or about basic biblical concepts like serving.
The site is rich with colorful images and each devotion can be completed in under 5 minutes.
Each topic includes a guided prayer and some activity ideas if you want to expand on the devotion topic.
Current topics available include:
