Chemical Reactions | Week 6
Series Bible Verse: 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.
Character Element of the Week: Service for God
Story: Nehemiah (Nehemiah 2:1-6:16)
Bible Verse: “…and to your patience, add SERVICE FOR GOD” 2 Peter 1:6c
Prayer: Dear God, You have done so much for me. Help me to serve You by helping others. Help me to see when others have a need and to do something about it. Amen
Parents: Is there another parent you know that could use a night out this week? Give them a call and offer to watch their children. Your children will love the extra playmates and you’ll be modeling “service to others” to your children.
Birth – Age 2: Even young children can help out at home. Instead of doing all the chores for them, invite them to help you with simple tasks such as putting their cup in the sink, throwing away their own diaper, helping to pick up toys, putting clean clothes away, etc. It will most likely take more time, but they will love helping you and the seeds you are planting are worth it!
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Do your children help out with chores at home? If not, start with a few simple chores such as making their bed (it doesn’t need to be perfect), helping set the table, sweeping after meals (again, perfection is not the goal), etc. Make it fun and remind your child that when they are serving their family, they are serving God.
