CB Kids June 26-July 2

This month we are in a series called Ever After. Fairytales are fun and entertaining, but we are going to look at the true story of Ruth to see how God truly writes the best stories for us!
Talk with your child: If you could have someone take care of one thing for you, what would it be? 
  • Water your plants?
  • Feed your pets?
  • Do your chores?
  • Go to the dentist for you?

Have some fun: If you were in charge of a fairytale wedding, what would it be like? Where would it take place, and how would it be decorated? Who would you invite, and what songs would play? What kind of cake would they eat?

Read these passages from the Bible: 
  • Ruth 4
  • Matthew 6:24–36

Talk about it:
Today's story tells the story of Ruth marrying Boaz. Ruth and Naomi were sad when they left their homeland, but now there was something to be happy about! God was going to take care of them and fill them with joy. Matthew reminds us that God takes care of birds and flowers, and that He cares about us far more than those things. He doesn't just give us clothes to wear and food to eat -- he takes care of us forever.

Pray together: Dear God, thank you for showing us that you will always take care of us. Thank you for reminding us through Ruth’s story that you have an “ever after” story for each of us. Help us believe and trust in you because you sent your son, Jesus, to be the ultimate redeemer we needed! Amen.

Recap:
Ruth and Naomi were sad when they left their homeland, but now there was something to be happy about! Almost all fairytales end with "happily ever after", but today's story reminds us that we truly can be filled with lasting joy because God always takes care of us.
