Extreme Saying of the Week: “Live at peace with everyone”

Lesson in a Word: Peace

Story: David Hides in a Cave (1 Samuel 24:1-22)

Bible Verse: “Live in peace.”  Romans 12:18a

Prayer:  Dear Jesus, help me do my part to keep peace around me.  There will be times when I want to act in anger or get even, but help me to have the strength to be peaceful and show kindness instead.  Amen

“Take-It-Home” Activities:

Parents:  It can be extremely difficult at times to be a peaceful parent!  Pray for God to help you bring about peace in your home through your attitudes, words and actions.  Take a minute to think about what helps keep you calm, whether that means getting up early to make sure you have some time to yourself, reading, creating, exercising, cleaning (yes, cleaning works for some of us!), and then make sure to include those in your daily routine.  Don’t be afraid to give yourself a “time-out” when you are frustrated and know that simply getting silly (singing, dancing, laughing) can change attitudes quickly!

Toddlers: Pray over your child this week that God will help them to live out Romans 12:18.

Age 3 – Kindergarten:  Peace is a hard for our little ones because most times it requires selflessness.  Choose this week to focus on peace in your family.  Talk with your child about what peace means, then tell them you are going to be the “Peace Police” this week.  Every time you see your child sharing, allowing someone else to choose or go first, using kind words, saying “I forgive you,” not responding with angry actions, etc. give them a Thank You and a great big hug!
