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.

CONFIDENCE: Living like you believe what God says is true.
Series Memory Verse: Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
Main Point: When Jesus is with you, you can face anything.
Bible Story: Peter and John before
the Sanhedrin 
Acts 4:1-22; supporting Acts

God is stronger than anyone and He can do things that would be impossible for you or me. He has proved this throughout history, but nowhere is this more evident than in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Because of what Jesus has done, we can have confidence. And when you put your faith in Jesus, you can live fully alive.

We finish the month with something Paul wrote in Romans 8:38-39. The church in Rome needed some encouragement … and Paul delivered. He wrote, “Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.” (NIrV) God’s love gives us the confidence to face anything.

Live like you believe what God says is true. God’s Word is filled with His promises. When we believe them, we can live with confidence that God will be true to those promises and help us through whatever comes our way.

At dinner this week, ask: How can you continue to grow a deeper relationship with Jesus going forward?

And when you put your faith in Jesus, you can live fully alive.

In Acts 4:1-22, Peter and John didn’t care that they were arrested for talking to others about Jesus. They had so much confidence in Jesus, that they would keep talking about Jesus even if it meant dying for their faith.

When Jesus is with you, you can face anything. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we don’t have to fear anything that happens. God can give us the confidence to trust Him no matter what.

This week have each family member set a goal to take one step toward trying something they’ve always wanted to try but didn’t have the confidence to go for it.

CONFIDENCE: Living like you believe what God says is true.
Series Memory Verse: Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
Main Point: Stay focused on Jesus.
Bible Story: Peter Walks on Water  |  Matthew 14:22-33

God is stronger than anyone and He can do things that would be impossible for you or me. He has proved this throughout history, but nowhere is this more evident than in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Because of what Jesus has done, we can have confidence. And when you put your faith in Jesus, you can live fully alive.

There’s an important story about confidence found in Matthew 14:22-33. Peter and the rest of the disciples were out on the Sea of Galilee when they noticed a figure walking on the surface of the water. When they finally realized that the figure was Jesus, Peter called out and asked Jesus to invite him onto the water. Jesus did. And Peter took a stroll on top of the waves. However, only when Peter is focused on Jesus is he able to stay above water.

Stay focused on Jesus. When we put our confidence in Jesus, we are able to find the courage to make the wise choice in a difficult situation. Jesus may not be asking us to walk on water, but He does have something planned for us. 

This dinner at week, ask: Who distracts you from focusing on Jesus?


Motion :: Week of July 7

CONFIDENCE: Living like you believe what God says is true.
Series Memory Verse: Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
Main Point: Find friends who help you trust Jesus.
Bible Story: Philip and Nathanael | John 1:43-51

God is stronger than anyone and He can do things that would be impossible for you or me. He has proved this throughout history, but nowhere is this more evident than in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Because of what Jesus has done, we can have confidence. And when you put your faith in Jesus, you can live fully alive.

In John 1:43–51 John recounts the start of Jesus ministry when He was starting to choose the 12 disciples. One of those disciples was a guy named Philip. Philip was so overwhelmed when he met Jesus that he couldn’t wait to tell others. Philip found his friend Nathanael and invited him to meet Jesus. Turns out that Jesus had big plans for Nathanael, too!

Find friends who help you trust Jesus. We all need people in our life who will help us live fully alive. We want kids to figure out who, in their life, is encouraging them to have faith in Jesus.

This week at bedtime, read John 1:43-51. Pray for each other, that you will find and keep close friends who help you live with confidence as you trust God each day.
