O God eternal, without whom life has no adequate meaning for
these times or any time, but with whom there is purpose for the
past, power for the present, and promise for the future; we wait
and worship. Transform us by your wisdom and love. Amen.

Theme: In the Bible, God tells us
how to live.
The importance of the
Bible is a fact that needs to be taught to each generation of
children, as well as repeated to adults. As the basis for our
faith and Christian identity, the Bible's priority as a resource
must be maintained. That priority is far from assured in a
culture filled with self-help books and personal gurus and other
ways of selling happiness. Distinctively, the Bible offers God's
advice, God's teaching, and God's instruction about life and
success. People need to be made aware of God's manual as a
source of wisdom.
2 Timothy 3: 16
Device: A plastic model kit
Technique: Ask the children if they
have ever put together a model kit. Did they find it easy or
hard? Were they able to follow the directions? Open up your kit
and display all the parts and the instructions. Comment on how
many pieces there are in the model. Do they think they could
ever get the model all together without directions? We might get
a few things right, but we'd never get it perfect. We'd probably
leave things out or get them in backward. That's why we have the
instructions, to tell us how to put the model together.
The Bible is like that. The Bible is a book
with instructions. Who wrote those instructions? The Bible has
God's instructions. And who are those directions for? They're
for us. The Bible is like an instruction book for people, just
like one for models. If we want to know what to do, if we want
to know what's good or bad, the Bible is a place we can go to
Read the Bible passage. The Bible is good
for teaching and correcting and for telling us what's best. The
Bible is God's book, telling us how to live so that we'll be
Note: You can give an example of what the
Bible says about an important question for kids, or you can ask
if they have any questions they'd like to ask the Bible.

Please pray with me.
Gracious God, as described in the Book of Jeremiah, you pour out
your new covenant for your people. We rejoice in unison by
sharing the messages you have written on our hearts. Salvation
in Jesus Christ is the prosperity we need to proclaim to those
searching for your mercy and love. Multiply these gifts so that
ministries are provided with your people today who seek to be in
a faithful relationship with you. Amen.
