Term 2 – Week 08
Big Idea – Followers of Jesus are to trust in God, their heavenly Father, to provide for their needs because he cares for his children.
- To know that it’s foolish to anxiously pursue earthly things, because these are what non-Christians pursue and they are temporary and ultimately do not provide any security..
- To understand that living God’s way in this world means trusting God to provide for his children and seeking first his kingdom.
- Belief – Help the children to see that it is right to work hard in life and get good grades at school etc. but this is not where our priorities in life should be as followers of Jesus
- Behaviour – Get the children to think about some of the things themselves and the people in their family worry about. Ask what do you think are things we should worry about instead? How can we put God and his priorities in our lives? E.g., coming to church, school work, friends parties, prayer, getting new clothes and possession
Matthew 16:24-26 (NIrV)
Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must say no to themselves. They must pick up their cross and follow me. Whoever wants to save their life will lose it. But whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good is it if someone gains the whole world but loses their soul? Or what can anyone trade for their soul?
