Theme: We can obey God with confidence, for He always knows what’s best
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight.” (Prov. 3:5-6)
Scripture Memory: Review Romans 3:23
Catechism Q&A: Q. What did God require Adam to do? A. To obey the Lord perfectly.
Trust and Obey, part 1: Read Isaiah 40:11-15, 22-26. Before reading, tell your children to listen for: 1)What God measures and 2)Where He sits. This passage gives us a picture of God’s awesome knowledge and power.
Take some measuring cups, a scale and a ruler outside. Tell your children that you are going to measure how much dirt is in your yard. After spending some time digging and measuring, tell them the job feels too big. Do they agree? Even though it would take your family a very long time to measure all your dirt, God knows not just the amount of dirt in your yard but also the amount of dirt in the entire world! Emphasize that God knows everything. Tomorrow, we’ll talk more about how His omniscience enables us to obey with confidence.
