Read today's scripture together from your bible!

Philippians 2:12-18

The sermon message from this passage helped remind us to:

Understanding God’s Purpose: how bad things can happen for good.

Difficult times help develop maturity

Difficult times Enhance our testimony

Complaining has become so prevalent in today’s culture that sometimes we don’t even realize we are doing. Illustrate the dangers of complaining with a few object lessons.

What do you choose to see: 

Hold up a plain sheet of paper with a single dot in the center. Ask kids what they see. Most likely, they will comment on the dot. Point out that what you have is a perfectly good sheet of paper. It just happens to have one little dot. So often we are more likely to point out the tiny bit of bad in a situation, rather than focusing on the overall positive.

What do you taste: 

Explain that kind words are sweet and special to the soul, while negative grumblings are sour or bitter. Allow kids to sample something sweet, like honey, followed by something sour or bitter, like vinegar or lemon juice. Alternately, provide a small spoon of sugar and one of salt…have kids blindly guess which they’d like, without knowing what will be sweet and what will be salty. Emphasize again how important it is to think before we speak. Talk about why complaining can be so damaging.

What do you say:

Ask students what kinds of things upset or irritate them. Is it doing a chore? Fighting with a brother or sister? Having to wait for things? We have probably all been told by parents that we shouldn’t grumble, but why does it matter? What do you think the Bible says about it?

Hard Questions and

Answers from Gods Word

This article will provide some guidance to leaders and parents as you help children who have survived a disaster or crisis. Some children may not have experienced personal loss in their lives yet but are living in fear that it’s coming.

Children may be frightened by what they are seeing or hearing around them. They may be afraid of getting sick or losing a loved one. So, this article will help you with the hard questions that come from hurting people, questions for which there are no simple answers.

Please know that this is not an exhaustive list of questions or Scriptures. But it is a starting point we hope will be helpful for you.

Furthermore, you can add other Scriptures that come to mind as you work with children. So may the Holy Spirit use these to speak to you!
