RESPONSIBILITY - Showing you can trusted with what is expected of you.
God doesn’t want for us to move through our life simply trusting Him. He wants us to become more like Him by showing others that we can be trusted as well. Every day, you have opportunities to take what God has given to you: your stuff, your words, your relationships and use them wisely. When you respond to God with the abilities that He has given to you, you are responsible.
And when you are responsible with a little, the Bible says you will be given more: more opportunities, more relationships, more ways that you can use what God has given you to reflect His character to the world around you. Our monthly memory verse says it this way, “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much,” (Luke 16:10, NIV).
Our series is called, “Great Expectations—will you win Trust." It plays out like this: God has proven He can be trusted. When we trust Him and we respond to Him with our abilities, then we are responsible. And when we are responsible, we live a good story. We are a light to others. They will see our good works and glorify God because of how they see Him at work in us.
Parents, using the resources below, lead your kids in talking more about the Bible stories and the virtue of responsibility all this month.
God Time Cards are devotionals for you to use with your child at home during the week. Each day's devotional includes a verse to read, an activity, a devotional that teaches something about God, and a suggested prayer.
Parent Cues are a great way to get a quick look at the virtue and memory verse for the month; as well as the bible story for the week and questions for parents and kids to ask one another at various times throughout their day together.
