Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
Encourage the children to study God's
Word and to ask God what is the right thing for them to do. Explain
the difference between seeing with your eyes and mind, and seeing
with our heart and spirit. Also explain how God is always with
us when the lights are off.
- (Speak with the children)
- Sometimes you don't
see clearly with your eyes and mind or your heart and spirit.
Your eyes and mind can play tricks on you in the dark. Your heart
and spirit look search truth. When you don't know what is true,
what is right from wrong or good from bad, you can get into trouble.
It is like being in the dark. You cannot see as good as you did
when the light was on.
- (Teach the children)
God wants to be our
Lamp! He can light our way and keep us out of trouble. What He
says in His Word is true! The Bible shows us right from wrong
and good from bad. God's Holy Spirit helps us understand what
is written in the Bible. Jesus shines a bright light in our heart
and spirit so we can see more clearly, what is good and what
is true. We can know what is wrong or evil in God's eyes. Knowing
what God says in His Word will help keep us out of the darkness.
- (Let the Critters help teach the lesson)
The Campfire Lights the Darkness (1) with
The Kid Cave Forest Critters are having a
celebration at the camp grounds. Cami Cub and Liam Leapfrog have
made the campfire but it is still very dark in the forest. They
see something in the distance that has frightened them. They
need a Lamp to show them what is in the darkness.
Cami Cub and Liam Leapfrog are in need of
a brighter light. They cannot know the truth about what the see
in the distance in the darkness of the Kid Cave Forest.
- Repeat today's bible verse.
- God is always with us. When we pray, His
Spirit will comfort us. Jesus gave us His Holy Spirit so we can
see what is good and what is bad. He will lead us to make the
right choices as we study what the Bible Says! The Lamp God gave
to lead us through the dark and into knowledge of what is good
and bad is His Word. The Light it shines is Jesus!
Worship God with music.
