Ready for Launch
We want kids to realize that when they know what needs to be done, God might be telling them they can be the one to do it.
Look for ways to make things right.
In week two, we see a different part of Nehemiah’s story. In Nehemiah 5:1-12, we discover that while everyone was building the wall, an issue arose. Some of the Israelites were severally mistreating each other. Even though Nehemiah was in charge of rebuilding the wall, he stopped building the wall to confront the issue. Helping others who were mistreated was more important than finishing the wall. He cared enough about the people to say to help them figure out a solution.
Look for ways to make things right. As they grow up, kids will notice others in need. They may see when others being mistreated. We pray that kids will start to understand how they can be part of the solution to helping these situations and fixing what’s broken. Maybe they can do this on their own; perhaps they need help from a trusted adult. Either way, we pray that they take the initiative to help instead of thinking it’s someone else’s problem. God can use them along with the trusted adults in their life to make an impact in the lives of others.
