Memory Verse: “Go and make disciples of all nations.’ Matthew 28:19, NIV
We see other works of art every day that have a Maker and a plan. We pass them on the street, at work, and every Sunday they play around our feet. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Yes, people! People are God’s works of art. He is our maker. And, He has a plan for each of us, because He made us and loves us.
In this week’s lesson, God is with Joseph when his older brothers get mad and send him to Egypt.
Joseph had no idea where he was going. But you know what? God knew! God was with Joseph, and He had a special plan for him. He loved Joseph very much. God has a special plan for each one of us, too!
Even when things don’t seem to go the way we want them to, we can choose to remember that God has a great plan for us. When we remember that, we can choose to have a cheerful attitude even if the situation is tough. God’s big plan for us is like a great work of art; it will be beautiful when it’s finished!
Children can recite the verse every week in May to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card, celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.
“The plans (hold up fingers 1, 2, then 3)
of the Lord (point both fingers up)
stand firm forever.” (stand feet wide with hands on hips)

Practice this verse together and encourage your child to recite it to their eGroup Leader this week in Quest.
