- Read the Bible Verse for the day!
- The Bible Says:
- My God will meet all your needs.
He will meet them in keeping with his wonderful riches that come
to you because you belong to Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
- Teach the children the difference between
our wants and our needs. Help them to trust that God does provide
all of our needs. He does not want us to worry.
- (Speak with the children)
God does not want
you to worry about anything. Trusting God is important. God wants
you to know He will give you everything you need. That does not
mean He will give you everything you want. You need food, clothing,
and shelter. You may want toys and candy. Do you understand the
- (Teach the children)
We want things, many
of them we do not really need. Some of them even get in the way
of our love for God and other people. It is important to God
that His children love Him first, Others Second, and then take
care of themselves. That is how we find the special kind of joy
God wants us to have.
First - J - Jesus, Second - O- Others, Third - Y- You, The J
- O - Y = JOY

What Shall We Eat? part 1
Emmi Squirrel and Cami Cub are busy
gathering and storing food. They will need it when the cold weather
comes. Some of the food they need is hard to find in the winter.
God has given them much! They do not worry. God is faithful!
They know God will keep them safe and they will have what they
need until spring.
Cami Cub and Emmi Squirrel will not worry.
God has given enough food for them and plenty for them to share.
Repeat today's Bible verse.
- It is not bad to prepare for tomorrow. God
is pleased when look ahead and make good choices. He is also
pleased when we trust Him to take care of us. When we believe
God will take care of us, we can be a blessing to others as we
share what we have with them.
Worship God with music.
