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.

Play a fun game with your toddler to help them remember that we can go God’s way!

Say, “Listen closely to my instructions and follow me!” Lead your toddler to different locations around the house, instructing them to either walk, hop, tiptoe, march, or twirl each time. After you arrive at each location, encourage your toddler to say, “I can go God’s way!”

After the activity, say, “You did a great job going the right way! God’s way is always the right way and He wants us to follow Him! Who can go God’s way?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can go God’s way!”
