She ran away from the ball.
THIS WEEK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL
This Wednesday is Week 4 of our teaching series titled, "#GivingUp." This week we'll talk about giving up popularity. We'll read about Jesus and his grand entrance into Jerusalem, days before being crucified.
What a welcome Jesus got as he entered Jerusalem. “Hosanna!” the people cried, hailing him as an honored king. The crowds loved Jesus on Palm Sunday, but just a few days later a different crowd was calling for his death and the release of a murderer. Popularity and acclaim in the eyes of others is fleeting, and if we put all our faith in it we will be very disappointed.
Instead, God calls us to put our faith in God's unending love and grace- something that will never go away, and will sustain us through the times when others have abandoned us.
