take it home | 1-20-13

2 Peter 1:5-7   …add this to your life: faith, and to your faith, goodness: and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, patience; and to patience, service for God; and to service for God, kindness; and to kindness, love.

The character element of the week is:  KNOWLEDGE

Story: David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17:1-58)

Bible Verse: “…and to your goodness, add knowledge” 2 Peter 1:5c

Prayer: Dear God, You know everything because you made everything. I am glad that you made me and gave me a mind to learn. Help me to learn more about you so that I can understand you better. Help me to learn your ways so that I can do what is right. Amen.

Parents:  Pray specifically that God will explain your knowledge of Him this week and then have faith that He will teach you and reveal himself to you!

Birth-Age 2: Children learn so quickly at this age! Talk to your children as much as you can. As you are getting them dressed, point out body parts, as you are driving, talk about God’s creation that you can see outside the window. During dinner, talk about how God made each food to help our bodies in a special way.  Pour the knowledge of the truth into their days.  You’ll be surprised at how much they will remember!

Age 3-Kindergarten: Take a trip to the library and pick out some non-fiction books about something your child finds interesting. Spend time reading, learning, and talking together. Remind your child that God created their ind and desires for them to grow in knowledge of him and his world!
