To view this week’s video curriculum, visit the eKidz YouTube page.
As a family, read “David and Goliath” (1 Samuel 17:1-50) from a children’s Bible. (CLICK HERE for children’s Bible recommendations.)
After reading the Bible story, discuss these questions together:
- “What happened in the Bible story? (King Saul’s soldiers were too afraid to fight Goliath. When David took food to his brothers, he saw Goliath and chose to fight him. David put a stone in his sling when he fought Goliath and David won.)
- “When David fought Goliath, he knew God would be with him. Is God with you too?” (yes)
This week, engage in everyday moments to continue the conversation:
- Morning Time: When you go into your child’s room, ask, “Where’s my super kid?” And then say: “There you are! I know you’re a super kid because God is with you!”
- Cuddle Time: Cuddle with your child and pray, “God, help us remember it’s not how high we can jump or how big our muscles are that make us brave. It’s You, God. You being with us can help us be brave.”
- Drive Time: While on the go, take turns saying, “God is with me at [name of place].” Name a different place each time you say it. Talk about how God can help us be brave because God is with us wherever we go.
- Bath Time: Add plastic blocks (or similar item) to bath time. Tell your child to count as they stack five blocks, line up five blocks, lay five blocks on a wash cloth, etc. Talk about how David chose five stones to face Goliath. David was very brave because he knew God was with him.
