Motion :: Week of August 25

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, trust God to give you wisdom.
Bible Story: Trust in the Lord | Proverbs 3:5-6

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 week four, we finish up the month with another one of Solomon’s proverbs in Proverbs 3:5-6. This familiar passage talks about trusting God’s plan rather than our own. When we lean on our own understanding, we will never consistently make the wise choice. It’s through trusting in God that we can find true wisdom for our life.

If you want to be wise, trust God to give you wisdom. God is the author of wisdom. We can grow in wisdom as we read God’s word and discover His plan for our life. We pray that kids will put their trust in Jesus and discover how they can grow in their relationship with Him.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 3:5-6. Pray for each other, that God will give you wisdom to take the next step, even when things don’t go the way you think they should.

In week three, we head to 2 Chronicles 10 and discover what happens with Solomon’s son, Rehoboam. When he took over as king over Israel, people pleaded with him to make life easier for them. Rehoboam received counsel on both sides of this issue. Rather than acting on the advice from his father’s advisers, he acts on the foolish advice of his friends. This ends up causing a split in the nation of Israel, creating Israel and Judah.

If you want to be wise, hang out with wise people. It’s been said that we are sum total of our five closest friends. Who we choose to spend our time with influences not only the choices we make but who we are. We pray that kids learn that when they surround themselves with wise friends, they will be more likely to make wise choices throughout every area of their life.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 13:20. Ask God to provide you with friends who love Him and will help point you toward wise choices.

Bible Story: Wise People See Jesus Proverbs 22:3

This week, we look to something Solomon wrote in Proverbs 22:3. Wise people see danger and go to a safe place, but childish people keep going and suffer for it, (NIrV). Without thinking, people can rush into a situation and soon discover that they are in trouble. Solomon warns us to make sure we know what we’re facing before we move forward with a decision.

If you want to be wise, look before you leap. Kids face all sorts of decisions where they have to decide if they will keep going or pause to evaluate the best option. This happens as they learn to navigate friendships, technology, and priorities. We hope that kids discover that pausing to ask, “What’s the wise choice in this situation?” can save them from getting hurt.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 22:3. Pray for each other and ask God to help you take a good look first and get wise advice from someone you trust before “leaping.”

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.
