WISDOM: Finding out what you should do and doing it.
Series Memory Verse: If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God…and it will be given to you.” James 1:5a (NIV)
Main Point: If you want to be wise, search for wisdom.
Bible Story: Jesus Grows in Wisdom Luke 2:41-52

Wisdom is more than just being smart. It’s more than knowing the difference between right and wrong.
Wisdom means learning how to see life from God’s perspective. It’s finding out what you should do . . . and doing it!

Since God is the source of all wisdom, we can always go to Him to find it.  We’ve got to go on the hunt — Goonies-style — because His wisdom is worth searching for.

In Luke 2:41-52 we discover that Jesus knew His Father’s house was where He needed to be. We’re told that Jesus grew in wisdom, faith, and friendship. This is the model we should follow as we seek to grow in our own relationship with God.

If you want to be wise, search for wisdom. Kids are growing up in the information age. There is access to more data than we could possibly need or imagine. But our knowledge is only as good as how we apply it. Wisdom is out there; we just need to find it.

Pray your kid finds value in searching for wisdom through God’s Word, trusted friends, eGroup Leaders, and family members. 


Quest :: Week of August 5

Monthly Focus: Whose way is perfect? (God’s way is perfect.)
Bible Story: Jonah ● Jonah 1:1–3:10
Main Point: I should go God’s way.
Memory Verse: “God’s way is perfect.” 2 Samuel 22:31, NIRV

When you think about it, there are tons of different ways we can go in life. And, they can all sound like the right way at the same time. There are more choices than ever on which way to go. Is this the right way, or is that the right way? But God’s way is perfect. In fact, GOD’S way is the ONLY way that is 100% the RIGHT way every, single time! Not my way. Not your way. God’s way!

In this week’s lesson we learned that we should go God’s way because God’s way is perfect.

God used a really big fish to help Jonah go His way! We may have many options on which way to go, and we may not want to go God’s way. But, God’s way is the best way because God’s way is perfect.

This week cuddle up with your child and pray, “Dear God, Your way is perfect. It’s always right. It’s always best. Help us go Your way. I want Your best for [child’s name], and I know Your way is the best way. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can go God’s way.
MEMORY VERSE: “Teach me Your way, O Lord.” Psalm 27:11a (NASB)
BIBLE STORY: Jonah and the Big Fish I Jonah 1:1 – 3:10

This month we are learning, “I can go God’s way!” It’s important to trust God and follow Him because His way is the right way, every single time!

We will learn the story, “Jonah and the Big Fish” in Jonah 1:1 – 3:10. When God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, Jonah didn’t want to obey at first, but when Jonah decided to go God’s way, God forgave them and he was able to talk to the people there about God. Just like Jonah, it’s important that we remember God’s way is always the right way! There are different ways we can choose to go, but God wants us to trust and follow Him because He knows what’s best. We can go God’s way!

We made a Bible story mat to help us remember God’s Word helps me. Place the Meal Time Bible Story Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your toddler:

  • Who is the man in the picture who was swallowed by the big fish? (Jonah)
  • After Jonah was swallowed by the big fish, which way did Jonah decide to go? (God’s way.)

Say, “When God told Jonah to go to Nineveh, Jonah didn’t want to obey at first, but when Jonah decided to go God’s way, he was able to talk to the people there and God forgave them! God wants us to trust and follow Him because He knows what’s best. We can go God’s way! Say, “Who can go God’s way?” Encourage you toddler to say, “I can go God’s way!”
