Harvest the Wise

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 become wise from following God’s Word

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child 1 Kings 4:29-34; Proverbs 1:1-7) Solomon was very popular because of his wisdom. Much of his wisdom was written down, and most of these writings are in the book of Proverbs. The reason that Solomon wrote these Proverbs is so that people can live better lives. Solomon knew that to become wise you had to follow God our creator.  God is all knowing, so it makes sense that we look to Him for guidance. Wisdom is more than just knowledge, it is following God’s plan for your life, putting what you know into practice.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Tell your children about the wisest person you know. Explain how you’ve seen this person be wise. How have you seen this person follow God’s Word? Discuss the choices this person made and why those choices showed wisdom. Talk about what you’ve learned from this person. Ask your children to tell you about the wisest people they know—and why. Encourage your kids to share with you any areas where they need God’s wisdom this week.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
To celebrate wisdom this week, place a party noisemaker or a bell on your kitchen table. Anytime you make a wise decision or hear a wise decision, use the noisemaker to celebrate. Everyone who hears should cheer and join in the celebration. Each time you sit down at the table to eat, review together any wise decisions made since the last time you ate together, and celebrate with the noisemaker again! Talk about the importance of each of those decisions and the possible consequences and bad decisions.
