“C” of the Week: Courage

Lesson:  Be Strong!

Story: Abigail (1 Samuel 25:1-42)

Bible Verse: “Do not be afraid.”  Joshua 1:9

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I am so glad that I am never alone.  You are always     with me and watching over me.  Please help me have the courage to trust You each day.  Help me to not be afraid because You care about what happens to me.  I love You.  Amen

Take-It-Home Activities:

Parents: Is there something that you’ve been needing to do that     will take courage?  Ask God to give you courage, then commit to doing it this week!

Birth – Age 2: Be a cheerleader for your child as they take on new challenges (feeding themselves, walking, going down the slide, sitting in the “big kid” swing, climbing up the stairs, helping around the house, etc.).  Encouragement goes a long way to instill courage.

Age 3 – Kindergarten: Help your child memorize this week’s Bible verse (the short version or the whole thing!).  Remind them that God is always with them and that they can say this verse anytime they are afraid or nervous (in bed at night, getting dropped off at daycare or pre-school, coming to Bright Beginnings).  When they show anxiety, take a moment  to pray at that moment, modeling that they can talk to God any time.
