Training Camp: God’s Word Is a Light. Psalm 119:105

May 5, 2024

K-3rd Grade

4th-5th Grade

Story Focus: We start the month with Psalm 119:105, where David wrote, “Your word is like a lamp that shows me the way. It is like a light that guides me.” When we read what the authors of the Bible wrote, we can find out how God wants us to live. It’s like we’re listening to God. God offers us wisdom throughout the pages of the Bible that can guide us to not only discover more about ourselves, but also how to love God, trust Jesus, and treat others well.

Bottom Line: Practice hearing from God. Part of growing in our faith includes learning about what God has planned for our lives. To do that, we need to take time to listen to what God is telling us through the Bible, and through those who’ve read the Bible and can help us understand what it means for our life. While kids might not be able to read and understand everything they encounter in the Bible, we still pray that, through this lesson, they’ll get the foundation they need to navigate and personalize the Bible. On top of that, we hope they will eventually make reading the Bible a regular part of their faith journey as they grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Key Question: How can you hear from God? When kids are taught that they should learn to hear from God, they might have some big questions. As concrete thinkers, they still process what they learn about the world quite literally. And while they might not audibly hear God speak, they might wonder if hearing from God is even possible. Thankfully, we can point them to the Bible—or other people who can read and understand the Bible to help them discern how God might be speaking to them. We hope this question gives kids a chance to wrestle with what it means to hear from God and discover that hearing from God might not be as difficult as they might have thought.

Memory Verse: “ Training the body has some value. But being Godly has value in every way. It promises help for the life you are now living and the life to come." 1 Timothy 4:8 NIRV.

Commitment: Making a plan and putting it into practice.
