Hi RF Friends,
Today, we started off the morning, playing a fun game that helped us encourage each other. We then dove into our Bible lesson in 1 Kings 19:14-21 and 2 Kings 2:1-15. We took a look at a different sort of friendship between Elijah and Elisha. God knew Elijah needed help and directed him to Elisha. Elisha came alongside Elijah and stayed with him to the very end. Elisha knew the importance of encouragement.
Bottom Line: Friends encourage one another. Our kids are growing up in a world that can feel like everyone is out for themselves. God has a different way for us to live. God wants us to take time out to encourage others. Kids will find out how they can be friends who use their words and actions to build others up.
This is the 2nd week of our Bible Memory Verse Challenge for 2020-2021. It was awesome to hear the kids say their Bible verses again. The kids are off to a great start. This week’s memory verse is “Encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NLT).
