Elementary

November 12, 2017

Sometimes it’s hard to feel grateful. November 11-12, our hope is for kids to walk away with a plan to refocus on what really matters and discover how they can show gratitude.


The Story

Matthew 20:1-15, teaches us a parable Jesus told one day about some vineyard workers. In the story, a few of the workers started making comparisons to what others were getting paid and became ungrateful and started complaining. Then, at the end of the day, they had a bad attitude because they thought it wasn’t fair.

Bottom Line: Adjust your attitude.  We can change our whole outlook on life if we take the time to refocus and think about all that we’ve been given.  We pray that kids will see their own life differently and discover all the ways we can show gratitude.
