MONTHLY FOCUS: I can trust God.
MEMORY VERSE: “I trust in you, my God!” Psalm 25:2a (NLT)
BIBLE STORY: Daniel and the Lions | Daniel 6
This month we are learning, “I can trust God.” God loves us and we can trust Him no matter what!
We will learn the story, “Daniel and the Lions,” in Daniel 6. When the king made a new rule, Daniel knew it was wrong and continued obeying God by praying to Him. Because Daniel didn’t follow the king’s rule, he was thrown into a den with lions. Daniel trusted God and God protected him from the lions! We can always trust God, just like Daniel did. Sometimes we might be scared, worried or feel alone, but no matter what we face, we can remember that God loves us and we can trust Him!
We made a Bible Story Meal Time Mat to help us remember that we can trust God. Place the Bible Story Meal Time Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the place mat and review the Bible story with your toddler:
- Who is in the den with the lions? (Daniel)
- What can we learn from Daniel’s story? (I can trust God.)
Say, “Daniel trusted God and God protected him from the lions! We can trust God, too! Sometimes we might be scared, worried, or feel alone, but no matter what we face, we can remember that God loves us and we can trust Him! Who can trust God?” Encourage your toddler to say, “I can trust God.”
