This month we will be learning about self-control, which is choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to. We don’t always want to do the right thing, but with God’s help we can have self-control, and choose to do the right thing.
Our memory verse this month is 2 Peter 1:3 - “God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a goldy life..” This verse will encourage us to remember that our strength to make difficult choices comes from God.
This week, we will be looking at another one of Solomon’s vivid word pictures in Proverbs 25:16 and find out what happens when we indulge and eat too much. But this proverb isn’t just about how much we eat. Kids will learn that too much of anything, even if it’s a good thing, can have serious consequences.
Bottom Line: Know when to stop. Knowing when to stop isn’t always easy for kids. A lot of times it’s a parent or teacher who helps them know it’s time to stop what they’re doing and take a break. We hope that kids start to see that stopping something—even if it’s fun—can be the wisest choice. We also want them to know they don’t need to do this on their own. God will help them know when to stop.
See you Thursday!
