The Rise of Fall

Key Verse: “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him”
(James 1:5)

Our hope is for our kids to know that: We can rely on God

(Open the bible and read to your child 2 Samuel 5:1-5; Psalm 37) David was finally anointed as King of Israel. Saul, who was Israel’s first king had tried to kill David, but David spared Saul’s life when he had the opportunity to kill him. Saul was now dead after being injured in battle. In fact Saul took his own life after the injury, and his three sons, including Jonathan, died in the same battle. With Saul and his sons dead, it was now time for David to become King. David relied on God to fulfill his promise to him, and waited patiently on the Lord.

(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk with your children about a time you faced a situation you couldn’t handle on your own. Maybe you had a fight with someone and needed someone else to step in and talk to that person in order to restore the relationship. Or perhaps you couldn’t pay a bill and you asked a family member for money. Tell your children what you learned about relying on someone else and how the situation worked out. Ask your children to share what they think it would look like to rely on God in that situation. Then encourage each family member to share a difficult situation he or she is facing. Talk about ways to spend less time worrying and more time relying on God in these situations.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
Write a Psalm this week as a family. Each person in the family should write a one stanza that describes why we should rely on God or why God will never let us down. Put all the stanzas together, and then work together to memorize the entire psalm.
