Story Focus: We start off this series with something Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:18: “Give thanks no matter what happens. God wants you to thank him because you believe in Christ Jesus.” It’s pretty clear. Giving thanks is something God wants us to do. No matter what happens, we can be thankful for Jesus and God’s gift of salvation.
Bottom Line: You always have something to be grateful for. When life is hard, or even if life is normal, it can be difficult to find why you should be thankful—especially for kids. We pray that as kids think about this Bottom Line, they’ll remember that they can always be thankful to God for sending Jesus to be our Savior.
Key Question: What are you grateful for? We kick off this month of gratitude by helping kids to refocus on their own life and discover reasons they can be thankful. We can get so busy with life that we often don’t take the time to pause and notice what God has done for us. We pray that kids will consider why they can always be thankful.
