CB Kids July 24-30

This month our CB Kids are learning about all the big things God was able to do through Elisha and can do through us, too! this week we learned I can ask God for what I need.

Ask your child: Would you like to take a ride in a hot air balloon? What makes a hot air balloon fly? [hot air!]. What do we need to keep us going? [food, air, water, love]

Read these passages from the Bible:
II Kings 4:38-44; Luke 11:1-9

Talk about it: What's the difference between a want and a need? Give some examples of each. Sometimes we spend a lot of time praying for the things we want, but forget that they are not what we need. When we know the difference, we can learn to be happy with what we already have.

Have some fun: Prepare a snack dipped in powdered sugar (such as doughnuts or brownies) to
represent the flour in today’s story. Do you remember what Elisha put in the stew to make it good to eat again? It was flour, like in today's story! How do you know Elisha asked God for help? Read Luke 11:9. What does the Bible say you can expect when you pray and ask for what you need?

Pray together: God, thank you for listening when I pray. Thank you for giving me good things and taking care of me. Help me to remember I can always ask you for whatever I need. Amen.

Learn the memory verse:  “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2 (NIV)  Click here for the ASL video for this Bible verse.

Recap: God sees everything and so knows everything we need. But that doesn’t mean we should just sit around and do nothing while we suffer without.  I can ask God for what I need, and God will hear me when I pray.
