Sunday, July 15th - Gideon


We look to Judges 6-8. When God called Gideon to lead the Israelites, Gideon doubted God would really want him to help. Gideon was from the smallest tribe, the smallest family , and he was the smallest of his family! God wanted him anyway and eventually Gideon learned that God could use him no matter what!

Big or small, young or old, God can use people to do amazing things. we pray that whether kids feel like Gideon or have the confidence of an extreme sports superstar, kids will realize that God can use them.

Scripture this week: Judges 6-8

“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” The Lord answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”

  • Life Application: Confidence - Living life you believe what God says is true.

  • Basic Truth: I can trust God no matter what.
  • Memory Verse: "I will remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" - Psalm 27:13 

Next Steps for Parents & Grandparents: While in the car, start a conversation that goes something like this, "God can use you no matter what. Do you remember the note I wrote you that said all the wonderful things I see you you? What do you think you would want to do with those gifts one day?"
