Story Focus: For week three, we take a closer look at Proverbs 6:6- 8: “Think about the ant! Consider its ways and be wise!” God created ants to take responsibility and work hard storing up food for the winter months. We can look to their example as we take responsibility and work hard.
Bottom Line: Work hard. God has created us to work, yet often we try to escape having to do the work in front of us. We pray that this simple Bottom Line will be a reminder for kids to take responsibility when they have a job to do. God can give them the strength they need to follow through and get the job done.
Key Question: When have you had to work hard? Kids tend to want to avoid hard work at all costs. However, when they remember how God has helped them work hard in the past, it can encourage them to work hard with whatever they’re facing now. We hope they’ll see that they can try their best to accomplish whatever task stands in their way.
Memory Verse: Suppose you can be trusted with something very little. Then you can also be trusted with something very large. Luke 16:10A NIRV
