Memory Verse: “We have the Lord our God to help us.” 2 Chronicles 32:8 (NIV)
Things are going to happen in our’ lives where they we need God’s help — times when our lives will zig one way and then zag another. But God loves us and can help us anywhere, with anything, no matter how hard it may be. He can even help us help others! This month, we’ll learn about the life of David and how even when it zigged and zagged, God was there to help him.
In this week’s lesson, David helps Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth.
Mephibosheth was hurt and needed help, so God helped David help Mephibosheth! God can help you help others, too. This week, find ways to help all the people around you. I’m so thankful God helps us help others!
