Isaiah 61. “Hope for the Hopeless”. A Reminder of what God Cares About. Placemat 11 of 12.
“In Isaiah’s beautiful poetry, we discover that God’s heart breaks for the brokenhearted. The Lord loves the poor and downtrodden.” Our Isaiah 61 placemat shows a threefold scene from the passage in which God proclaims that He will bind the brokenhearted, release the prisoners from darkness, and give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes. This is the same passage that gets fulfilled in Jesus’ coming! Our parent resource aims to teach your family that there is no one in the world who is overlooked by God, and that, as Christians, we have the opportunity to parter with Him in the work of compassion, especially to those who have experienced injustice.

The parent resource encourages you to talk about God’s purpose and to take a stand for what is right, even when it’s tough. This conversation will equip your family to be on the constant lookout for God’s hand, even in the hard things!
