With the anticipated start of school comes the ritual of school supply shopping. We diligently check every item off the supply list to make sure our kids are fully equipped for the year ahead. But many of the things they’ll need at school aren’t on the shopping list. For example, things like decision-making skills, discernment, and perspective.
Our kids need to know the difference between right and wrong and have the courage to do what they know they should. Then they will be equipped for whatever they may face this year. That’s why giving them a strong foundation in WISDOM is so important.
For the whole month of August in kid's church, we will be doing just that! Wisdom is our main point and we will be talking about it through funny skits, story telling, and even in the games we play! It's going to be a fun month. I look forward to teaching your child!!
Here are some great verses for you and your child to read together, that go along with this months subject!
James 1:5, NIrV
“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.”
Proverbs 13:20, NIrV
“Walk with wise people and become wise. A companion of foolish people suffers harm.
Proverbs 12:18, NIrV
“The words of thoughtless people cut like swords. But the tongue of wise people brings healing.”
Proverbs 22:3, NIrV
“Wise people see danger and go to a safe place. But childish people keep going and suffer for it.”
Proverbs 8:10, NIrV
“Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold.”
