In preschool (3-5 years), we talked about being good helpers. God never meant for us to do everything all by ourselves. We need other people to help us, and other people need us to help them. No one is good at everything. Each person has unique talents and gifts, and we should use those to build up other people and lend a helping hand. After all, “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9 NLT).
Learning about God doesn’t end when we leave church on Sundays! Here’s a fun activity taken from this weeks lesson:
Family Fun: It’s time for a…… (mental drum roll, please)……CROSS CHALLENGE! Hebrews 12:2-3 says, “We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.” So, this week, try to see how many crosses you can find in everyday life. It might be with telephone poles, road signs, or even some pens and pencils at work or school. Each time you or a family member spots one, pause for a second and thank God for the incredible gift He gave to us: life. At the end of the week, add up how many crosses you all have spotted. Talk about why it’s important to always be setting our sights on Jesus.
Have a GREAT week!
