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: Self-Control

Story: Noah & the Ark (Genesis 6:9-9:15)

Bible Verse: “…and to your knowledge, add SELF-CONTROL” 2 Peter 1:6a

Prayer: Dear God, I am so glad that You have control over everything that happens. You have a purpose for everything and everyone. Help me to have self-control to do the right things. Also, help me to have self-control so I will not hurt others with my actions or words. Amen

Take-It-Home Activities:

Parents: Write down one area in your life that needs self-control. Ask God to help you!

Birth – Age 2: Young children often use their bodies to get attention by crying, hitting, poking, scratching and grabbing. When these times arise, it’s an opportunity to teach them about self-control. Use phrases like, “Use your words,” “What do you need?” and “Let’s share.”

Age 3 – Kindergarten: Playing a card or board game is a great way to practice self-control! Play one with your child this week and encourage self-control by helping everyone take turns and be good sports. When the game is finished, have everyone give high fives and say “good game”!
