Elementary, July 3: Big Wisdom in Little Packages

Hi Journey Kids parents!

The book of Proverbs gives us a whole list of little animals that are actually really wise. Ants, for example! They’re one of the smallest of God’s creatures yet they know to store up food so when there isn’t any available they won’t starve. Here’s the point. Little creatures – including little children – can live wisely! We want nothing more than for your children to live wisely now and to grow into wise young men and women.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: The Book of Proverbs: Big Wisdom in Little Packages

Big Idea: God gives wisdom to even the little creatures, so I’m not too small to make wise choices.

Memory Verse: “You have been taught by the holy Scriptures… they have given you the wisdom to receive salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

Wisdom comes from God. It doesn’t discriminate according to age or size. It’s available to everyone who asks for it – including your children and including you! I hope this week you’ll encourage your children to seek God’s wisdom and that you’ll seek it yourself!
