Motion :: Week of January 26

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Know when to stop.
Bible Story: Too Much of a Good Thing| Proverbs 25:16

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

This week, we finished our series by looking at Proverbs 25:16 to find out what happens when we indulge and eat too much. However, this proverb isn’t just about how much we eat. We learned that too much of anything, even if it’s a good thing, can have serious consequences.

Know when to stop. Knowing when to stop isn’t always easy. A lot of times it’s a parent or teacher who helps kids know it’s time to stop what they’re doing and take a break. We hope that kids start to see that choosing to stop can be the wisest choice and God can help them know when to stop.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 25:16. Ask God to give each of you the wisdom and power to know when to stop and when to act.

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Choose your words carefully.
Bible Story: Choose Your Words Carefully | Proverbs 12:18

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

This week, we took a look at to Proverbs 12:18 to learn more about self-control. Solomon wrote about the power of our words and how choosing the right words brings healing to a difficult situation, rather than destruction.

Choose your words carefully. We want kids to think about the words they use throughout different situations, because our words can help point others to Jesus.

At dinner this week, talk about how you can regain self-control when you feel yourself about to lose self-control.

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Think before you lose your temper.
Bible Story: Slow to Anger | Proverbs 16:32

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

This week, we took a look at Proverbs 16:32, where Solomon used the idea of a fighting warrior to help us understand that being patient and keeping our cool is always the wise choice, regardless of the situation.

Think before you lose your temper. God can give us the strength we need to pause and think about the consequences of our actions. Rather than letting our anger get the better of us, God can help us show patience and keep the situation under control.

At dinner tonight, talk about how you can encourage each other to practice self-control.

Motion :: Week of January 5

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Doing what you should can keep you safe.
Bible Story: City with Broken Walls| Proverbs 25:28

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

We started our new series by taking a look at what Solomon wrote in Proverbs 25:28. Solomon uses an image of giant city walls keeping people safe as a way to show the importance of living with self-control. We’ll discover that having protection, like city walls, is the perfect way to help gain self-control.

Doing what you should can keep you safe. When you choose to do what you should, instead of doing what you want, you keep yourself out of danger. We hope kids discover the value of relying on God for self-control even when it’s difficult.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 25:28. Pray together, asking God to give each of you the power to control yourself so you can better show love to Him and others.
