We’re learned about WISDOM this month. Check it out!
August - First Pres Kids
WISDOM, worth searching for!
In virtual Sunday School, we talked about searching for treasures and discussed some treasures we have found over the years. We used a fun science kit to dig for real fossils. While digging, we learned that WISDOM is a treasure really worth digging for because wisdom helps us make the right choices in life. We learned that the Bible is a treasure chest full of wisdom and looked at some verses in the Bible that are great examples.
WISDOM, Trust God to give wisdom
In virtual Sunday School, we learned that when God told Solomon to ask for anything, Sol chose WISDOM because he knew how valuable it was. We heard how his wisdom was put to the test in a difficult situation with two women and a baby. We learned that great treasure hunts often take time (even a fun fossil digging kit!) and the hunt for wisdom is no exception. Most importantly, we learned that if we need wisdom in any situation, we should ask God for it.
WISDOM, Think before you act
In virtual Sunday School, we talked about things we know exist that aren't physical things we see in front of us...FRIENDSHIP, HAPPINESS, FEAR, LOVE, FRUSTRATION, BEAUTY, and another important one - DANGER. We talked about how in life we aren't always given a map warning us of danger ahead. We learned that we can use the wisdom God gives us to help us stay safe and that the best way to do that is...STOP, THINK, and then ACT before making a decision.
WISDOM, Hang out with wise people
In virtual Sunday School, we looked at some statements and decided if they were wise or unwise. A few unclear ones led us to a discussion of the importance of surrounding ourselves with wise people. We looked at a demonstration with pasta and noticed that whatever color water the pasta was put into, that's the color the pasta became. We learned that just like the pasta in this demonstration, we can be influenced by our surroundings. Finally we talked about celebrating and showing appreciation for wise friends in our lives...a few kind words, an act of kindness, a gift from the heart (ex: homemade friendship bracelet). We learned that you can even make a friendship bracelet out of paper!
