We're searching for some amazing fruit; the fruit of the Spirit! God helps us grow in all kinds of ways, from love to joy to self-control. During this series, we'll be learning about all the ways a God can help these amazing fruits grow in our lives.

MAR. 6/7 | FAITHFULNESS/GOODNESS

Look It Up: Gen 39-47

Faithfulness means doing what is right and good all the time, even if no one is watching. This week, we’ll see how Joseph stayed faithful to God, wherever he was, and whatever he was doing.

Big Idea: I can do what God says is right.

At Home: Make a list of good things you could do, even when no one is watching. You could talk about cleaning your room, picking up toys, saying kind things, and more!

Ask: Faithfulness means doing what’s right and good every time,
even when no one is watching us. How can we be faithful to our friends? (say kind things about them, don’t say mean things when they’renot there.)

Memory Verse:  Galatians 5:22 |  “But the fruit the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy, and peace. It is being patient, kind, and good.  It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself.”

Have you ever had questions about God, Jesus, the Bible, or life? Your questions are so important. This whole series is focused on finding answers to some of the biggest questions kids are asking!

MAR 6/7| WHY SHOULD I READ THE BIBLE?

Why do we follow what a book that is thousands of years old says? How do we know that the Bible is true? This week, we’ll discover why we can trust the Bible to guide us and help us learn about God today.

Big Idea: God can use the Bible to lead me.

After Video Questions:

  • Bowie’s really not sure how to read the Bible, or why it’s important. What would you tell him?

  • Do you have any questions about the Bible? (You don’t have to answer every one of these, but this is a great opportunity to acknowledge that kids’ questions are valuable and important.)

Look Up and Read: 2 Timothy 3:16-17. These verses are about why the Bible is important.

Say This: God gave us the Bible to help us learn about him, and to tell us some important things. The Bible is filled with stories, poems, wise sayings, and much more. Sometimes, though, the Bible can be difficult to understand.

Do This: Read each of the verses on the “Bible Styles” sheet. Talk about each type of writing in the Bible, from story to poetry, and why it makes a difference what style of writing the authors were using.

The Point: The Bible is so amazing! It has true stories from a long time ago, teaches us about Jesus, and it also has amazing poetry, songs, and much more. All of those things, even though they are different, are part of God’s message for us in the Bible.

Memory Verse:  1 Corinthians 13:12  |  What I know now is not complete. But someday I will know completely, just as God know me completely.
