You can medidate on how Jesus fed about 4000+ people as told by Matthew. (http://bible.cc/matthew/15-32.htm )
There is much to mediate on which Matthew highlights. Jesus ralks about happiness and people. You can read through these passages . You can find Matthew 5:00 to 5:12. Meditate on the words of Jesus with your homeschoolers as we prepare for Lent.
You can also look into Psalms and Especially Psalm 7. You can reflect how people have taken refuge in God and contemplate the Psalm. ( http://niv.scripturetext.com/psalms/7.htm ) . You can then reflect on Jesus and his word about Faith. Those who seek will receive is a message stressed in the mediations at : http://bible.cc/matthew/7-8.htm .
Try to use these mediations this Lent season as you contemplate the season with your homeschoolers.Use the Bible as your primary source to reflect on during Lent season. Share passages with your kids on a daily basis. Then hit the churches and Wilkes Public Library to see how you can give back to your local community. Consider volunteering at the library or donating to them during the Lent Season. Find ways to Volunteer of Give Back.
