Wisdom—Finding out what you should do and doing it

If any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone and doesn’t find fault.

James 1:5, NIrV

Bottom Line

Never stop growing in wisdom.

We finish up the month with something Paul wrote in Romans 12:2. Don’t live the way this world lives. Let your way of thinking be completely changed. Then you will be able to test what God wants for you. And you will agree that what he wants is right. His plan is good and pleasing and perfect (NIrV). As we put our faith in Jesus and allow His Spirit to change us, we’ll not only grow in our relationship with Jesus but we’ll also mature in how we see the world and the choices we’ll make.

Bottom Line: Never stop growing in wisdom. No one ever has all of the wisdom they’ll ever need. Just like we can keep learning about the world around us, we can keep learning how to make the wise choice throughout different circumstances we face. We pray that this month sets kids on a journey to discover how they can keep growing in wisdom and their relationship with God.

Message to Parents

How many times have you picked up your kids and tried to spark up a conversation about school?  How many of you are faced with the same response to pretty much every question…”How was school?  Fine. 

Anything fun happen today?  No.  Tell me the best thing that happened today?  Lunch/Recess.”  Let’s change that!  Here’s questions to get them talking!

Now for your Kids...

Grab your Bible, ice cream sundae supplies and get ready to experience Jesus with your kids!  Here’s your theme…Wisdom is finding out what you should do and doing it.

Ask them, “Did you know that there are three parts of your body that never stop growing? Guess which ones?”

“It’s your ears and nose, they’re made of soft tissue and cartilage. Some scientists believe those cells are able to keep multiplying. Others suspect that gravity plays a role. Whatever the reason, your ears and nose will keep growing long after the rest of your body has stopped.”

Read Proverbs 9:9 with your kids.

Share with them, “Just like your ears and nose keep growing, we should never stop growing in wisdom! That’s why you see adults at church reading their Bibles, taking notes, praying, or talking to others about God. They’re growing in wisdom because they know there is always something new to learn. Growing in wisdom is like enjoying a never-ending bottomless ice cream sundae except you won’t get a tummy ache. But maybe we should test that!!!”

Grab all the supplies have an ice cream sundae party! As you make your sundae, share your favorite verse about wisdom. Before you enjoy your treat, ask God to help you grow in wisdom to find out what you should do each day.  Have fun with your kids!!!
