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: Trust God completely

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child 2 Kings 2:1-5) Elisha was chosen by God to succeed Elijah. We don’t know how Elisha knew what was about to happen, but apparently he realized that his mentor, Elijah, would soon be taken to heaven. Elisha was totally committed to staying with Elijah until the very end. He wanted to benefit as much as possible from Elijah before Elijah went to be with God. Elisha had been faithful to God, and God rewarded him with the strength he would need to minister as a prophet amid the evil conditions that existed in Israel.

Share:
(This is an opportunity for you to ask some questions and to share your thoughts) Parents: Talk to your kids about someone who is faithful to you. How has this person been faithful to you? Now talk about what it means to be faithful to God in the same way—to stay true, to never leave, to love him only. Point out ways that your family is faithful to God, such as obeying God, doing what’s right even when it’s hard, or going to church to learn more about God. Encourage your family to continue to be faithful to God.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
This week, either individually or as a family, show love to someone who’s hurting. Or you may want to share your faith in Jesus Christ with somebody, or serve selflessly, the possibilities are endless!
