Living a Fruitful Life - Don' Be Lazy

Last Sunday Discovery Point: 
Living A Fruitful Life - Don't Be Lazy

Today, the children gained a better understanding of being zealous for the Lord. They discovered that goofing off and being lazy may seem fun at the moment, but they can miss out on so much. Instead, children should be eager to help mom and dad, clean their room, or study for school. The blessings from working hard for the Lord can last a lifetime. (Scripture used: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15) 

Memory Verse:
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23 NIV

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help him or her remember the verse, but it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:

Both the ant and the squirrel, as well as many other animals show that they are not lazy by storing up food for the winter. What if they didn't do this? Brainstorm with your child over some things that you can store up for winter, or for a rainy day. Suggestions: You can purchase some favorite canned goods on sale for an emergency. If it is getting close to winter you can prepare some firewood for easy access when it gets cold. You can even start saving coins to buy Christmas gifts for a family in need. Whatever you choose, let it be something fun, rather than something that is a chore.

Daily Prayer:
Dear God, You are the Lord of my life. Please give me the strength I need to serve You with all my heart. When I need to do something that is right and according to Your Will, help me to avoid the mistake of being lazy, even when I don't really feel like doing it. Amen.
