Hello Reign Forest Friends!
We look to Judges 6–8. When God called Gideon to lead the Israelites, Gideon doubted God would really want him to help. Gideon was from the smallest tribe, the smallest family, and he was the smallest of his family! God wanted him anyway and eventually Gideon learned that God could use him no matter what!
Bottom Line: God can use you no matter what. Big or small, young or old, God can use people to do amazing things. We pray that whether kids feel like Gideon or have the confidence of an extreme sports superstar, kids will realize that God can use them.
We did a quick review of the story together by writing down and crossing out numbers from the story (ask them to show and explain it to you). We also talked about some bugs and how strong they are! The kids were given a small creature to take home to remind them that no matter how small, young, unsure, etc. they may feel, they can be confident that God will be with them always and give them the strength, courage, wisdom they need to do what God asks them to do.
