Today, we looked into three Bible heroes to see what we can learn from them.
*Prayed for her child before he was even conceived or born.
*Came to God with her problem, not someone else.
*Praised God after she received what she asked for. Do we always thank God after we receive answers to our prayers?
Samuel in his youth:
*Even though he was so young, he chose to follow God instead of his own desires.
*Immediate response & obedience when God called Samuel to serve Him.
David in his youth:
*Responsible and obedient even from a young age.
*Hardworking (in the pasture tending sheep).
*Brave (defended sheep from a lion & conquered Israel’s enemy: Goliath).
*Used his musical talents for God (sang psalms & played the hard).
*Relied on God to help him conquer instead of relying on himself.
*The Lord was with Him.
*The Lord honored David by anointing him king of Israel.
Lessons & Conclusions:
*God is everywhere, not just in church and Sunday school.
*Therefore, we can make lessons for our children even in ordinary life situations.
*Because God is in math, in science, in history,in EVERYTHING!
*We can teach our children about God even at a young age!
*Do not underestimate children. They understand a lot!
*And what they don’t understand now, they will later on in life. Our job as a parent is to plant the seeds of faith.
