How did David protect his sheep? Be sure to connect with your child and review the Bible story for Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

The Story

We know things are going to happen in our preschoolers’ lives where they will need God’s help—times when their lives will zig one way and then zag another. We want them to grow up believing that God loves them and can help them anywhere, with anything, no matter how hard it may be. He can even help them help others!

David was a young boy when he was alone and needed to protect his sheep.  Actually, he wasn’t really alone, God was with him.  God helped him protect his sheep from the scary lion. Be sure to ask your preschooler to retell this Bible story, (giving a few hints) and then ask the monthly key question, “Who can help you?” God can help me.
