Have you ever lost anything? How did you feel when that happened? How did the woman feel when she realised that she had lost the coin? How did she feel when she found the coin? Have you ever felt like dancing with joy because you have found something? Why did Jesus tell this story? What did we learn about God from this story?

Time to get up

What happened to the lady in the story? How did Jesus know that she had been healed? Why did Jairus come to find Jesus? Did Jesus panic when Jairus' servant said that the little girl was dead? How did Jairus trust in Jesus? How do you trust in God?
