1 SAMUEL 17:1-50 David is brave and battles Goliath for God's people.
SAY THIS: Who helps you do big things? God helps me do big things.
While bathing your child, add an assortment of big and little bath toys to the water. Tell your child to sort the toys into groups of big and little by lining them up on either side of the bath tub. Talk about how God loves us and wants to help us do all things, both big and little.
“We have the Lord our God to help us.”
2 Chronicles 32:8, NLT
BASIC TRUTH: GOD MADE ME
From Parent Cue:
A STORY WORTH TELLING
By Carey Nieuwhof
Everybody loves a story with a great plot line. We applaud the hero, sitting mesmerized at the edge of our seat while good battles evil, or while right struggles with wrong, hoping for good to win. We cheer when good prevails and even get emotional when the victim gets rescued.
Everybody loves a great story. It’s just that few of us want to live it.
Great stories involve conflict. Think about the movies you watch and novels you read. When it comes to the story of good versus evil, there is always a struggle.
As a parent, I want to see those outcomes in my kids’ lives. I just don’t want the drama. I wish my day would be as adversity-free as possible. I mean, seriously, who wakes up in the morning praying for a struggle? Not me . . .
