The Glory Belongs to God Alone

Our hope is for our kids to know that: The Glory for all we do belongs to God  

Key Verse:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Revelation 4:11

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Daniel 4) Nebuchadnezzar has another dream. Since Daniel previously interpreted a dream for the king he was called upon again. This dream pointed out that Nebuchadnezzar had a problem with pride. The king had a lot of success, so he figured it was all done by his doing. He knew about God but failed to give him the glory for all that He had done for the king. This dream served as a warning of what will come if the king didn’t repent for his sin of pride. Because of this the dream came true, and Nebuchadnezzar became insane. It took the king seven years before he looked to God and gave Him the glory. His sanity returns and he learns about the grace of God.

The Jesus Connection:
Read Daniel 4:27–33.
Daniel told the king to obey God’s commands—to stop sinning and practice righteousness. But even if the king wanted to stop sinning, he would not be able to. And if he could stop sinning, he would still be guilty of all the bad things he had already done and would still need to be punished for his sin. What the king really needed was to give up and call out to God for mercy. We are all sinners. We continue to sin no matter how hard we try not to. Plus, all the good things we do cannot cover up the bad things we have already done. Our only hope is to call out to God to save us. God has provided a way for us to be forgiven by sending his Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. It is only when we trust in the good work of Jesus on the cross that we can be saved
