Jesus is the Boss

The Story: The wind and water obey Jesus (Matthew 8:23-27)

Main Idea: Jesus is the boss.

At Home

  • If you have pictures of Jesus in a Bible storybook, show them to your child. Make sure your child understands that Jesus grew up.
  • Help your child to understand the word “obey.” For example, “Mommy says, ‘No.” Obey Mommy. Do what Mommy says.”
  • Talk to your child about bosses. Then remind him that Jesus is the boss of everything. For example, “Who is the boss of the house? Who is the boss at Daddy’s work? Jesus is the boss of everything!”


       Praise Jesus for being the boss of everything.
