OCTOBER - MORE OR LESS: THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Everything we have comes from God. He is faithful to provide what we need. And even more than what we own, God can also provide what we need to face whatever happens in our life. God has proven time and again, that we can trust Him no matter what. We can complain or become jealous of what others have, or we can choose to respond with CONTENTMENT, knowing that God has a plan for our lives.
“THEN HE SAID TO THEM, “WATCH OUT! BE ON YOUR GUARD AGAINST WANTING TO HAVE MORE AND MORE THINGS. LIFE IS NOT MADE UP OF HOW MUCH A PERSON HAS.”
LUKE 12:15, NIRV
Each week kids are taught about various people and concepts in the Bible about how they were content in their situations.
Week 1 - Be Content (Philippians 4:11b-13). Bottom Line: God can help you be okay no matter what.
Week 2 - Don’t Be Controlled by Money (Hebrews 13:5). Bottom Line: Stuff can’t keep you happy.
Week 3 - King Ahab and Naboth’s Vineyard (1 Kings 21:1-19, 27). Bottom Line: Wanting what others have can make you miserable.
Week 4 - Israelites Long for Egypt (Exodus 16:2-21; 17:1-7). Bottom Line: Don’t miss on what you have now.
