Honor Week 2

On October 13, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

In this week’s Bible story, Jonathan is a prince and rightful heir to the throne (1 Samuel 18:1-9; 19:1-7; 20:1-42). But Jonathan recognizes that God values David. Jonathan chooses to honor God and David by stepping aside and helping his friend take the throne. By honoring David, Jonathan sacrificed his place in the kingdom.

Our Bottom Line is: honor others by putting them first. When we are willing to give up what’s rightfully ours to a sibling or friend, it shows them honor. For kids, it might be letting someone else have the first place in line or play with the new toy they got for their birthday. When we take the time to think about what the other person wants or needs—and put them above our own desires—it shows how important they are.

The monthly memory verse is: “Love each other deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.” Romans 12:10, NIrV Putting someone else first might feel like a sacrifice, but it will show their value and help us remember humility. It is one of the best ways to combat selfishness and practice loving others deeply.

Honor Week 1

On October 6, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Oct_widescreen_bottomline1

All of God’s creation is important to Him. Jesus told us that God remembers each sparrow, even though there are thousands (Luke 12:6-7). But Jesus said that people are even more valuable to God. In fact, God counts every hair on our heads! God shows us how important we are to Him when He pursues a relationship with us. And He started in the very beginning when He sought out Adam and Eve in the Garden. God shows us how much He values us because He loves us.

Honor is letting someone know you see how valuable they really are. Like God’s honor is fueled by His love for us, we show honor back to God because we love Him. And we follow God’s example when we show honor to others. Showing honor demonstrates that we see others as God sees them. Every person we meet has value to God and deserves our honor.

An inability to show honor to others is often a symptom of a self-centered attitude. Too often, we see ourselves as more valuable than someone else. We are tempted to try to honor ourselves rather than honor others. But when we remember that Jesus came to serve and not to be served, we recognize that our place is to show others how valuable they are.

 

This month, let’s think about how:

(1) Giving honor to those that are different than us is not always easy. God showed honor towards us. As we become more like Him, we will begin showing honor to everyone.

(2) The Bible challenges us to respond to others with honor even when it costs us something.

(3) Honoring others shows them that we see them as God sees them.

 

This week, we’re discovering:

In this week’s Bible story, David didn’t seem like someone who would be the next king, and he sure didn’t look like he could defeat a giant (1 Samuel 16:1-13; 17:1-58). But God could see David’s heart and He knew David was worthy of honor. Samuel and all the Israelite army soon learned that people might be able to do far more than we expect.

Our Bottom Line is: honor others by giving them a chance. The kid who seems like an underdog at recess might just need a supportive opportunity. The janitor, lunch lady, or bus driver might have some wise advice. Even the cool kid might have an insecurity she’s sensitive about. We must be careful to avoid categorizing people just because of one characteristic. Everyone deserves a chance to be more than we expect.

The monthly memory verse is: “Love each other deeply. Honor others more than yourselves.” Romans 12:10, NIrV When we give people a chance, we show them that their ideas, feelings, and abilities are valuable. We give them honor by recognizing the contributions they can make in our lives.

Obedience Week 4–August 25th

On August 25, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Aug_widescreen_bottomline4

 

This week, we’re discovering:

In this week’s Bible story, God had kept His promise and Abraham had a son named Isaac (Genesis 15, 18, 21, 22). But God asked Abraham to do something that shocked him: to sacrifice his only son. When Abraham was willing to obey, he demonstrated his unwavering trust in God to keep His promises. Once God saw that Abraham would obey even when it could cost him something precious, God sent a replacement sacrifice and spared Isaac.

Our Bottom Line is: I should trust and obey even if it costs me something. We can trust that God wants what’s best for us, so when obeying Him (or our parents, bosses, or teachers) requires us to give up something, we can believe it will be worth it.

The monthly memory verse is: Obey your leaders. Put yourselves under their authority. They keep watch over you. They know they are accountable to God for everything they do. Obey them so that their work will be a joy. If you make their work a heavy load, it won’t do you any good.” Hebrews 13:17 NIrV
