The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Being Humble
This Sunday Discovery Point:
Today, we learned that a reputation is built by doing something over and over. To have a reputation for being humble, we must constantly honor and give thanks to God for all things. There will be many times in our lives that we will have more than someone else, have a newer toy than the kid down the street, or get a better grade than our friend, but we must never look down on someone else because they are less fortunate. Likewise, we should never think that whatever it is we have is because of something we did. All good things come from God, and He alone is worthy of our praise. (Scripture used: Daniel 5:1-30)
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up" James 4:10 NIV Memorize this verse with your child. Discuss what it means to humble ourselves before the Lord.
Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Read Proverbs 16:18 with your child. Discuss the difference between having a disdainfully proud or arrogant attitude verses taking joy in a job well done and realizing that God sets the ground work for all that we may ever hope to accomplish. We should joyfully thank God for all that He allows us to complete, rather than pridefully take credit for ourselves.
Father God, let us humbly submit ourselves to You. Help us realize that You are the potter and we are the clay. Do not let us think more highly of ourselves than we should, rather let us rejoice in the gifts and talents You have given us. May we use these gifts to honor You. Amen
