Let us Give Thanks

Key Verse: “Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done”
(1 Chronicles 16:8)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God helps us accomplish his plans

(Open the bible and read to your child Joshua 1:1-11) God spoke to Joshua the same way that He had spoken to Moses. Now that Moses passed away to be with God, the Israelites turned to their new leader that God has chosen. The task at hand was to finally cross into the land promised to them long ago, since leaving Egypt where they were slaves.  After God had spoken to Joshua he was very encouraged! God promised that He will be there with him and the Israelites, so they should be courageous!

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Share with your children a plan you feel God has for your life. Maybe it’s a ministry opportunity in your church or perhaps it’s a major career shift. Talk with your kids about what has kept you from following through—if anything—and think of ways you can get started working toward that plan this very week. Then ask your kids to share something they feel God might want to accomplish in their own lives. Encourage each other throughout the week to take the next step in following God’s plan for each of your lives.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Sometime this week do a ministry activity with your kids. Discuss why you do it and if it is the plan God has for your life. Talk with them about the importance of learning what plans God has for them, but reassure them they have time to discover that.
