When we face choices we don’t feel prepared to make, God’s wisdom is already available to us. He will always help us make right choices when we slow down, ask for His help, and seek out the wisdom He’s given us in His Word.
This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Proverbs 14:16,to learn that being patient can be hard, but when we slow down and pause to think about what God would want us to do, we can make wise choices.
To “fear the Lord” doesn’t mean being afraid of Him. It means having a healthy respect for His power and His plans for us. When we fear the Lord, we choose to believe His way is best and do things His way. If we want to be wise and make right choices, it’s important to take the time to slow down and think carefully about what we’re doing before we do it.
This verse also says, “a fool is hotheaded and yet feels secure.” It’s foolish for us to make careless choices and assume we’ll be okay. It’s not easy to be patient, but we can make wise choices by slowing down and pausing to think about what God would want us to do.
At bedtime this week, read Proverbs 14:46 and pray together. Ask God to help your child have patience as they wait for the time to be right for them to do everything God is planning for them. Pray they’ll learn to hear and follow God’s voice above all others.
In December, our preschoolers learned that God gave us Jesus, and now they will learn that because Jesus is God’s Son, He can do anything! With God all things are possible! Throughout their lives, children will encounter things they can’t do. But, in Jesus, they have a friend who can do it all. There is no better friend than Jesus, and He wants to be our friend forever.
This weekend, we learned about the time when Jesus fed over 5000 people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. Watch this week’s video on the Parent Cue app with your child to help them remember that nothing is too hard for Jesus — He can do anything!
While you drive in the car this week, point out objects and ask your child what they can do. For example, say, “There’s a traffic light. What can they do? (Tell us to stop and go.) There’s a big truck. What can it do? (Carry things like tools, dirt, furniture, etc.)” After the activity, ask, “Who can do ANYTHING?” and encourage your child to say, ” Jesus can do anything!”
WE’RE LEARNING… Jesus can do anything. MEMORY VERSE: “I know that you can do anything.” Job 42:2a (NLT) BIBLE STORY:Feeding 5,000 I Mark 6:31-44
This weekend, we played a fun game to help us remember that Jesus can do anything. Play this game with your toddler this week to help them think about how nothing is too hard for Jesus — He can do anything!
Read each of the challenges from the list below, and encourage your child to try each challenge.
Ask, “Can you…
Put your shoes on with one hand?”
Balance a ball or toy on one finger?”
Do 10 jumping jacks in one second?”
Stand on one foot for one minute?”
Jump high enough to touch the ceiling?”
Run around our entire home in less than one second?”
Spin in a circle for five minutes without falling down?”
Balance on one foot for the rest of the day?”
Continue the activity, choosing a different challenge each time. After the activity, say, “Those might have been too hard for you, but nothing is too hard for Jesus! Remember, Jesus is God’s Son, and He can do anything! Who can do anything?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus can do anything!”

QUEST 3 YEARS – KINDERGARTEN
This weekend, we learned “Jesus can do things we can’t.” Even though Peter and his fishermen friends had been fishing all night and hadn’t caught anything, Jesus was able to help them catch tons of fish! Jesus can do all kinds of amazing things that we could never do because He is God’s Son. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.
Question 1: Peter and the fishermen had been fishing all night, but they weren’t able to catch anything. They were ready to give up. Who told them to throw their nets back into the water? (Jesus) Question 2: When Peter let his net down again, what happened? (The net was full of fish.) Question 3: What is something you aren’t able to do, no matter how hard you try? Can Jesus do it?
MOTION 1ST – 5TH GRADE
This weekend, we learned about how our choices affect both us and the people around us. When we want to know how to make right choices, we can look in God’s Word. The book of Proverbs is a great place to start because it highlights how much better our lives can be when we choose obedience to God’s wisdom over our foolish earthly knowledge. Check out this week’s curriculum recap here.
Question 1: Have you ever made a foolish choice? How did you know it was foolish? Question 2: What could you do to make sure you make a wise choice in the future? Question 3: Where are some places you can find godly wisdom? (in the book of Proverbs, in other parts of the Bible, at church, through conversations with godly people)
