12 1 Bible Story Picture

As Summer wraps up and we move into a new school year, I am sure that there are many of your kids, who are unsure, experiencing anxiety, or find themselves nervously excited. And perhaps those feelings are just as true for you as your little ones enter Kindergarten for the first time, walk into a new school building, start preschool, or perhaps return to a situation where you just don't know how best to help.  

Our lesson this week is about Solomon asking for wisdom from God. In the third chapter of 1 Kings, God comes to Solomon in a dream offering to him whatever he might ask for. His father David has died, and he has inherited the thrown as King of Israel. He could ask for anything, and Solomon requests the Lord's wisdom. He chose very well, and God wished to bless him all the more for it. Our key passage for the next four weeks is James 1:5, 

"Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him."   

This scripture from the book of James is an excellent reminder to all of us that God is the source of our wisdom... all of it. The Lord knows about everything. God does not lack wisdom about anything, and He wants to share it with us. But keep in mind that there is not clarity on how long wisdom will take; just that it will be given. So as we struggle, continually seek the Lord in prayer, being confident that wisdom will come and patient in the waiting. 

Here are some starter questions:

Elementary

  1. What are the things you know the most about? 
  2. Are knowledge and wisdom that comes from God the same thing?
  3. How can you learn to become wiser?

Preschool 

  1. God told Solomon to ask for anything, and Solomon asked for wisdom. What would you ask for?
  2. Solomon was a wise king. Does that mean Solomon always made the right/best decisions?

Be Transformed in Baptism

After a fantastic Summer with many opportunities to explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus, some children may be interested in moving toward obedience in baptism. Our next baptism class is NEXT SUNDAY, AUGUST 18th. Sign up here to REGISTER
