WISE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON WISDOM
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: WE CAN ASK GOD FOR THE RIGHT WORDS
A lot of parents and kids alike focus more heavily on gleaning academic knowledge and gaining meaningful experiences, but teaching our kids to pursue wisdom will help them merge those fields and develop better, God-centered decision-making skills. Kids are placed in plenty of situations where they would need to exercise such discernment. While the wisdom they would need on a daily basis may not be on the scale of Solomon deliberating an argument between two women each claiming to be the rightful mother of a baby, kids will still collect valuable insight about wisdom from such stories. They will first determine wisdom comes from God, and that being wise also has a lot to do with saying the right words and asking the right questions. . . all of which we can ask of God, who will give them to us because God can be trusted.
Motivating kids to produce a specific behavioral outcome can be tricky business. Watch this video to see how vastly different kids are from each other, and discover what might motivate your own kid!
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
