King David - Self Control

Last Sunday Discovery Point: King David – Self Control
Last Sunday, the children learned about having self-control. Having self-control means to follow the Will of our Lord, instead of giving in to the temptations of this world. It means keeping thoughts, actions, and desires in line with God's Will by resisting things that may seem good on the surface, but are actually bad. Giving into these desires is self-indulgent. (Scripture used: 1 Samuel 24:1-22)

Memory Verse:
 "Those who are controlled by their sinful nature can't please God." Romans 8:8 NIRV

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Discuss the difference between self-indulgence and self-control with your child. Fill in the blanks of each question with one of the following desires.
food      drugs      gossip       sassing     spending      television      music
1. How can we indulge in _________?
2. How can we show self-control when it comes to _________?
3. What happens when do not use self-control in _________?

Daily Prayer:
Dear Lord, I don't want to be controlled by evil or selfish desires. Instead, I want to follow Your Will and have self-control in my life. I want to please You, and be Your servant. Help me Lord to follow Your ways which are pure and holy. Amen.
