Used by God - Gifts from Above

Last Sunday Discovery Point: Used by God - Gift from Above

Today the children discovered that they are not only special because they are made by God, but that God has also given them special gifts to help serve in His Kingdom. People have many needs, and the church has many areas to serve. That is why all gifts are not the same, but all are very important. Also discussed was the difference between Spiritual Gifts and talents. (Scripture used: 1 Corinthians 12:4-11)

Memory Verse:

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17 NIV 

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:

Think of the people who attend your church, and especially those who serve in some capacity. Talk about which Spiritual Gift each person might have. Discuss how these Spiritual Gift might be used to build up the Body of Christ (the Church) and in what other ways can these gifts be demonstrated.

Daily Prayer:

Dear God, thank You for the special gifts You give to each of us so we can serve each other and build up the Body of Christ. Thank You also for giving me a special gift, to use for Your glory, but most of all, thank You for the very special gift of Jesus. Amen.
