FEBRUARY 7- online experience plan

Break the ice

Find a comfy place in your home to gather together as a family. Grab some snacks, grab your Bible, and get ready to make a moment of it!

Start off by having each person take a turn discussing the following prompt:

What do you think is the most helpful thing you have ever done? Tell us about it!

Let's Praise

Worship moment

Let’s get into a time of worship! Take a moment to stand/ stretch and then go ahead and play some worship music in your home. Have fun with it! Raise your hands, jump, close your eyes – engage in the worship moment as a family. It is special.

Great job worshipping R-Kids!
When we worship, we can thank God for loving us unconditionally and for sending His one and only son to save
us from our mistakes!

Big idea:
God wants me to help others.

Bible Lesson & MEMORY VERSE

Our Bible verse today tells us that God gave us the Bible so we can learn more about Jesus. When we
choose to believe in Jesus, we will have eternal life.

Now, let’s say it all together:
“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.
Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.”
Philippians 2 : 3-4



Today’s lesson is about "Humility"

Humility is to be humble.
To be humble is to recognize that everyone has different strengths, and that these are gifts from God.

The opposite of humility is pride. Pride stands for living life as if it’s “all about me!”
A proud person thinks and says things like, “I’m the best;” “I know everything;” “I am more important than you.”

What we do comes from what we think.
The “fruit” in our lives is our actions.
Just like a tree grows fruit from the water and food that comes from the tree’s roots, the way we act
is rooted or based on what we believe.

When we believe that Jesus is King, it changes the way we think and act!

If we don’t have Jesus’ help, our sinful human natures will lead us to grow “rotten fruit.”
If we want to produce “Jesus fruit,” then we need to ask His Holy Spirit to live in us and help us to live and love others like Jesus did. When we do grow Jesus fruit, God is pleased and others find us much more pleasant to be around.

BIBLE STORY - "A proud king takes a tumble"


Read Daniel 4.

King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that scared and bothered him.
God gave Daniel the wisdom to understand what the dream meant. Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar what the dream was about. He also told the king that he should quit doing wrong and start doing right.

But King Nebuchadnezzar did not listen to Daniel’s advice. One day Nebuchadnezzar was on the roof of his palace bragging about his mighty power and the great house he had built for himself. God spoke from heaven and told Nebuchadnezzar that his bad dream was going to come true. God made Nebuchadnezzar act and live like a wild animal until Nebuchadnezzar decided to give God the respect and honour God deserved.

King Nebuchadnezzar learned his lesson and acknowledged God and praised Him as the Lord
of heaven and earth. After this, Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom was given back to him and he told others that he now praised and glorified the King of heaven,“. . . because everything He does is right and all His ways are just. And those who walk in pride He is able to humble” (Daniel 4:37).

family discussion questions

How do you think God feels when He sees us with poor attitudes?

Which person would you like to have as a friend: someone who grows fresh fruit or someone who grows rotten fruit?

Which kind of fruit do you want to grow in your life?

If we don’t have Jesus’ love in our hearts, what kind of fruit are we more likely to have?

Who can help us grow fresh fruit?

family activity

THIS ACTIVITY WILL help us show HUMILITY and to be humble


I'm a star!

Materials:

Kings & Queen Dress ups!

Instructions:
Take turns dressing up as someone famous, while others plead for your autograph.

Discussion point:
Pride blinds us to our own faults, and leads us to judge others, which is wrong.

As you play, explain that many people who star in movies, concerts or in sporting events become so popular that whenever they go out in public, people swarm around them, asking for their autograph or to have their picture taken with the star. To avoid being recognized by the general public, popular figures sometimes wear dark sunglasses as a disguise.

Give each of your children a pair of sunglasses to put on as well, to conceal their identity from the “adoring public.” Take turns strutting around the house and being “mobbed” by fans (other members of the family) who persistently request autographs or photo opportunities.

    Pray it out

    REMEMBER When you are humble, you are being like Jesus.

    Let’s take time now to talk to God.
    Ask your child to share things they’d like to pray about.

    Write down your prayer requests and then pray together over each request.

    Dear God,
    Thank you for your Word, the Bible. You are so wise.
    Please give me a humble heart that is willing listen to You.
    When I am tempted to try and do things on my own, please remind me that
    You can help me in any situation. We love you so much.
    In Jesus's Name
    Amen
