Bible Story: This week we’re checking out a moment from the Sermon on the Mount recorded for us in Matthew 6:26. Jesus reminded His followers not to worry. After all, if God cares for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, God will definitely care for each one of us and what we need.
Bottom Line: You can have peace because God is in control. Sometimes we might wonder what kids have to worry about. However, any disruption in schedule or expectations or argument with friends, can cause kids to feel like life is out of control. We hope that as kids learn how much God cares for them, they’ll discover how they can find peace.
Key Question: How can you find peace even when life seems hard? Kids are discovering that life can be stressful. From the demands of school to the responsibilities at home to navigating friendships, many of them feel anxious as they try to hold it all together. We pray that they’ll discover ways to trust God and experience peace when life seems out of control.
Extra Memory Verse: “I have told you these things, so that you can have peace because of me. In this world you will have trouble. But be encouraged! I have won the battle over the world.” John 16:33, NIrV
