Story Focus: We finish up the month in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 and Exodus 12. In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul talks about taking time to celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper. When we eat the bread and drink the cup, we celebrate how Jesus lived, died, and rose again to make us right with God. As we think about what Paul wrote, we’ll also take time to remember that this celebration is rooted in the Passover celebration, where God’s people remembered how God rescued them from being enslaved in Egypt.
Bottom Line: Make a habit of being grateful. People often focus on bad habits that they need to stop. However, the best way to stop a bad habit is to replace it with a good one. Replace those sweets with healthy choices. Replace TV with exercise. Replace complaining with gratitude. We pray that kids will start to see that gratitude is a choice that God can help them make— especially when they remember all that Jesus did for us on the cross.
Key Question: What are some good habits you have? As kids get older, they can establish routines and habits that help them remember certain things: brushing their teeth, eating healthy food, and yes, even saying thank you. Throughout this lesson, we hope that kids discover ways that will help them remember to show gratitude for Jesus and the gift of salvation.
