Theme: Learn what “purpose” means
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21)
Scripture Memory: Review Psalm 100:1 – “Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.”
Catechism Q&A: Q. Why did God create you and all things? A. For His glory.
Discovering Purpose: Read Proverbs 16:4 and discuss how God has a purpose in everything. Do your kids understand purpose? Help them by showing them an assortment of household items. Ask, “What do we use this for?” When they tell you what the object’s primary usage is, explain how that job is the “purpose” of the item. After going through the pile of objects, point to them and ask, “What is your purpose?” Then refer back to the Catechism question – their purpose is God’s glory!
Notebook: Draw a picture of 1 or 2 of the items discussed today and write its purpose under it. Then draw a picture of your child and write their purpose next to the portrait.
