Wisdom Week 4

On November 24, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Nov_widescreen_bottomline4

In this week’s Bible story, King Josiah was very young when he started ruling (2 Kings 22-23). He could have followed in the footsteps of the kings before him and disobeyed God’s law. But when he heard God’s words read from the scrolls, he realized this was not wise. He decided to tear down the temples and idols to other gods and refocus Judah on God’s law.

Our Bottom Line is: If you want to be wise, look before you leap. Proverbs 22:3 says, “Wise people see danger and go to a safe place. But childish people keep going and suffer for it.” This verse encourages us to stop and think before we follow what others are doing. Just like Josiah taught us, even if others are doing something, that doesn’t mean it’s something we should do. We need to look carefully and make sure we’re making a wise choice.

The monthly memory verse is: “Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold.” Proverbs 8:10, NIrV Nothing we want—not riches or popularity—compares with the value of living wisely. Following God’s wisdom is worth any sacrifice we might have to make.

Wisdom Week 3

On November 17, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Nov_widescreen_bottomline3

In this week’s Bible story, King Rehoboam needed to make an important decision (1 Kings 12:1-15a). He asked the elders of the kingdom for advice. Then he asked his buddies and they disagreed with the elders. The king decided to agree with his buddies, and his decision led to a split in the nation of Israel.

Our Bottom Line is: If you want to be wise, hang out with wise people. Proverbs 13:20 says, “Anyone who walks with wise people grows wise. But a companion of foolish people suffers harm.” (NIrV) The people we hang out with will always influence the decisions we make. We want to choose friends who will encourage us to be wise, not people who will push us to do foolish things.

The monthly memory verse is: “Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold.” Proverbs 8:10, NIrV Good friends will help us remember what is most important. When we’re trying to make a decision, they will point us to God’s wisdom to help us make the right choice.

Wisdom Week 2

On November 10, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Nov_widescreen_bottomline2

In this week’s Biblical principle, Solomon, the wisest person who ever lived, teaches us to choose our words wisely. “Thoughtless words cut like a sword. But the tongue of wise people brings healing.” (Proverbs 12:18, NIrV) Speaking without thinking can cause damage. But wise words can help.

Our Bottom Line is: If you want to be wise, think before you speak. When we’re upset or emotional, we may be tempted to blurt out hurtful words that we might regret after we’ve calmed down. But taking a moment to think about the other people’s thoughts and feelings allows us to choose our words wisely. Imagine the great friendships we could have if we used our words to help others and heal situations.

The monthly memory verse is: “Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold.” Proverbs 8:10, NIrV Taking the time to think about choosing wise words will help us build stronger relationships. And strong relationships are more valuable than any treasure we might find.

Wisdom Week 1

On November 3, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Nov_widescreen_bottomline1

Wisdom is finding out what you should do and doing it. When we seek wisdom and ask God for it, He will give it to us. He will help us figure out the wise choice when we need to make a decision. We can find God’s wisdom by reading the Bible and asking trusted Christ-followers.

When we follow Jesus’ example, we will search for wisdom. We’ll learn what we should do, make choices that help us grow better relationships, and learn more about God. Working to apply wisdom to our lives shows that we believe God’s Word is true.

 

This month, let’s think about how:

(1) Choosing wisdom is not always easy. God’s Word is full of truth we can apply to our lives.

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

(3) Showing wisdom proves that God is at work within us.

 

This week, we’re discovering:

In this week’s Bible story, God is pleased with King Solomon and offers to give him whatever he wants. Solomon asked for wisdom (1 Kings 3:4-15). Solomon had the chance to use that wisdom when two women asked him to settle an argument for them. He was able to discern the truth and save a family (1 Kings 3:16-28).

Our Bottom Line is: God wants to give you wisdom. Any time we have a decision to make or a situation we aren’t sure how to handle, we can ask God for wisdom. When you aren’t sure of the next step to take, can’t decide between two good things, or don’t know how to help friends who are arguing, seek out God’s wisdom for answers.

The monthly memory verse is: “Choose my teaching instead of silver. Choose knowledge rather than fine gold.” Proverbs 8:10, NIrV No matter how big or small the decision, God will help you make the wise choice. It might be tempting to compromise wisdom for quick and easy gain, but Solomon teaches us that choosing wisdom first is best.
