September Faith Curriculum
Each month we focus on the practical life application of God's Word in kids' everyday lives. The Biblical Value for September is TRUST - Putting your confidence in someone you can depend on. The Monthly Bible Verse is from Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding."
There’s a phrase we often say around here, “I can trust God no matter what.” And it’s true; we know that God is that Someone we can depend on. Our own understanding can have a way of getting us in trouble sometimes, especially when life doesn’t turn out exactly how we’d want or expect. That’s why it’s important that our trust is grounded in God, His love for us, and His willingness to do whatever it took to have a relationship with us.
As we read through all the examples of trust throughout Scripture to find the best stories to help kids unpack this idea of trust, we kept coming back to one guy in the Old Testament, Joseph. After all, his entire life was built on his trust in God’s faithfulness. Joseph found himself in some of the craziest situations throughout his life, yet time and again Scripture tells us that Joseph trusted God and found hope in Him. So each week this month, we’ll take a closer look at Joseph’s life and discover something about how we can trust God and the people He’s put in our lives.
Our Memory Verse is Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding,” (NIrV). It’s easy for us to choose our own path, but it’s not always best for us. When we trust in God, He’ll give us the best path for our lives.
