The Finders: Fools Gold – Week 8 #Motion

finders4

Series Memory Verse: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Main Point: I can put others first by making things right.
Bible Story: Jacob and Esau Reconcile, Genesis 33:1-11

This was it! The last week of Finders 4: Fool’s Gold! If you missed episode 7, make sure to check it out here:

And now, the grand finale to the series.

Gasp! Goldman outwitted The Finders again! And now it looks like Less may not be just the helpful intern they thought he was. Stay tuned in the coming months for the return of The Finders!

In the end, Charlie apologized to the rest of The Finders and made things right with them. She finally humbled herself enough to reconcile. We also read in the Bible how Jacob and Esau made things right with each other, and that also required both parties humbling themselves. Forgiveness and reconciliation always require humility. Talk with your family this week about any relationships that might need restoration and see if pride could be getting in the way. Pray for Godly humility to always be able to ask for forgiveness and grant it.

Series Memory Verse: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Main Point: I can put others first because Jesus put others first.
Bible Story: Jesus’ Crucifixion, John 18:12-20:23

When we last saw The Finders, Charlie had just discovered that Goldman was hiding out in a town called Pyrite Point and she and Hannah were headed there to track him down. Check out what happens in this week’s episode of The Finders: Fool’s Gold!

Uh-oh. Charlie and Hannah found Goldman but now he has them trapped in his lair.

All series we’ve been talking about humility, which is putting others first. Today we looked again at the ultimate example of humility, Jesus, and his ultimate example of humility – when he died on the cross for us. In fact, the Bible says there is no greater love than laying down your life for your friends, and that’s exactly what Jesus did for us.

As we talked about Jesus’ death and resurrection, that may have stirred up some questions with your child about what that means for us and how we ask Jesus to be our savior. If it did, we have a resource for your family called a Faith Starter Kit. Read more about it here and reach out to your eKidz director to get a copy of it.

Lastly, make sure you come back next week for the stunning conclusion of The Finders: Fool’s Gold!


The Finders: Fools Gold – Week 6 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Main Point: I can put others first by serving them.
Bible Story: Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet, John 13:1-17

The Finders continue to track their nemesis Goldman and Charlie has been working hard to get a headquarters built to help their pursuit. She and Hannah are about to visit it in Episode 6 of The Finders: Fool’s Gold!

Charlie and Hannah are headed to Pyrite Point to continue their pursuit of Goldman. Make sure to come back next week to see how the chase goes.

We saw in the episode how Charlie’s pride continues to cause her to push others away and rely solely on herself. It has blinded her to how much help she has around her. We were also introduced to Less, Charlie’s intern. Contrary to Charlie, Less is happy to serve those around him.

In eGroup we talked about how one way to show humility and put others first is to serve them. Jesus set the ultimate example for us in how he served. In one particular instance that we looked at, he served his disciples by washing their feet. We are never more like Jesus than when we are humble enough to put others first and serve them. Talk with your family this week about ways that you can serve each other and those around you. Hold each other to following through and living a life of service.


The Finders: Fools Gold – Week 5 #Motion

Series Memory Verse: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. Philippians 2:3 (NIV)
Main Point: I can put others first by giving what I have.
Bible Story: John’s Advice, I John 3:17-18

The Finders are back in action. Charlie has gone from the quiet and reserved genius behind The Finders to somewhat of an international super-genius. Check it out in episode five of The Finders: Fool’s Gold!

Charlie’s fame has caused some prideful behavior and Hannah seems worried about it. Throughout the Bible, we are warned about pride and encouraged to pursue Godly humility. Our Scripture passage this week talks about one way to show humility – by giving what we have. There’s a certain pride that comes from keeping things to ourselves, but when we have something (whether that’s material items or things like encouragement, prayer, etc), we should put others first by giving.

Talk with your family this week about what things you have that you could bless others with and put steps in place to make sure you take those actions. And come back next week to find out more about Finders headquarters and see what happens next in Fool’s Gold!
