God teaches us through the bible to be submissive:
Titus 3:1-2Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
How lovely is the child that is obedient and allways listens, one that behaves good and is peacefull and kind and likes to help orders? Well that’s called :submission.
A submissive child hears and respects the instructions and obeys the teachings. Must submit to the authorities. Now who ar the authorities? Humm ….
The sport coaches,Etc.etc,
At home, there is also the grandparents, family members who are older including older brothers and sisters.
The Lord Jesus loves a child that is submissive and blesses them by answering their preyers. Don’t we like when we ask something to our parents and they listen? The same way Our parents like when we listen to them and obey what they say. When we act according to their comand.
So, let’s be submissive.
Submission.-What submission mean: the action of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another person.
Lesson Sunday April 9
MOSES IS BORN Moses was born in Egypt during a very difficult time when the Israelites were slaves. To make things worse Pharaoh passed a law that every male baby born of a slave would have to be killed, only baby girls could survive. Imagine how sad the Israelite families were. They already suffered as slaves, and now they would have to give up their sons to be killed. The Israelites were tired of this suffering, and asked God to free them from that situation. That was when God decided to protect a particular baby’s life, so that baby could be used by God to free His people. Moses’s mother trusted that God would protect her son so in an act of faith, she hid her baby in a basket and put him in the Nile River.
“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:2)
When we are obedient and willing to please God with a sincere heart, His plans for our lives can happen for example: your father can give you attention, can stop to fight inside of the house, you can have a lot of food, happy family… God is only waiting for us to act in faith and trust so that His plans can become true in our lives.
The Lord Jesus teachers us to forgive others.
If my friend does something which I don’t like, i must forgive him;
if my parents rebuke me or punish me for something I have done wrong, I must forgive;
if my brother or sister do commit a mistake, I must forgive.
Forgive always, forgive… forgive…
“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” Mat 6.12
Keeping grudges makes our hearts sad and heavy, it takes away our happiness and laughter. So, if we want to be happy and have a joyfull heart, than we must forget the bad things and forgive other people’s mistakes. In that way our Father Jesus will be pleased with us and forgive our mistakes.
Let’s exercise forgiveness
What do you do if:
My friend steps on my foot accidentally?
My brother takes something which belongs to me?
My colleague tisses me?
My parents ground me ?
My teacher rebukes me?
Can you imagine all the animals of the earth and the birds gathered in one place? Yes! In Noah’s ark!
Big animals and small animals.
Domestic animals and wild animals.
Crawling animals and flying animals.
Beasts, Mammals, Predators, birds.
Some we like, others we are afraid of.
Some we keep close, others we run away from.
Some look so pretty, other we are scared of.
Some so tiny, others huge.
All came together as one big family.
Male and famale of each.
Into the ark they went…. And The Lord saved them all.
Genesis 7:7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8 Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
Name the animals, get them ready to enter the ark.
Noah and the Ark
The people on hearth turned bad in God’s eyes.
Noah was good. He did not allow the violence and rebellion to get in his heart. He kept the fear of the Lord even when everybody else was acting bad and behaving wrong before God.
That is the reason why God decided to destroy the whole world through a flood and save only Noah and his family.
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. (Gen 6:8)
He told Noah to build an ark for him and his family and choose a couple of all the living animals, male and female to go in the ark also. In the ark they would all be safe.
(Gen 7) Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.
Let us be good and keep a clean heart even if other people around us are bad. God will save us and our families from destruction.
1-Tell your educator what can you do to be good in God’s eyes.
2-Draw your family in the ark then color it. Instead of Noah’s, write our name on it.
There was a new king of Babylon. His name was Darius. King Darius chose men to help him. Daniel was their leader. The other men did not like Daniel. They did not want him to be their leader
The men knew Daniel prayed to God. They went to the king. They asked him to make a new law. The king made the new law. It said people could not pray to God. People who did not obey the law would be put in a lions’ den. The lions would eat them.
Daniel prayed to God three times a day. The wicked men saw Daniel praying. They told the king.
The king knew Daniel must be put in the lions’ den. The king tried to think of a way to save him. But the law could not be changed. The king told his servants to put Daniel in the lions’ den. King Darius told Daniel God would save him.
In the morning the king went to the lions’ den. He called to Daniel. Daniel answered. The lions had not hurt him. He said God had shut the lions’ mouths.
The king was very happy. Daniel was safe because God had helped him.
Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. Dan 6:3
Daniel had a special relationship with God, he served God with his entire heart and mind. God gave him great wisdom, which led to continual promotion. Daniel honored God, his king and others around him. Because of this, God blessed him to the point that some of the king’s officials were jealous.
They knew that the only way to accuse Daniel was to find some way to attack his faith. They tricked King Darius into making an unjust law that made it illegal to pray to anyone but the king. Daniel knew the law, but more importantly, he knew his God. He continued to pray to God every day, even with the threat of death.
As soon as King Darius heard the accusations, he was sad. He liked Daniel cause he faithfully served God and the blessing that was on Daniel’s life brought favor to Darius’ entire kingdom.
“May your God, whom you worship continually, rescue you.” (Daniel 6:16)
When we serve God truly hearted like Daniel, God favors us. When those who don’t like us, try to do bad things against us, Go protects.
We must be good to our parents, to our family members, to our friends and neighbors. That will make us distinguished just like Daniel and everyone will see the character of God in us and He will be glorified through us.
This week let us exercise:
Pray more to God and ask wisdom.
Be good to everyone around us.
Honor our parents or guardians.
May the blessings that are in us, bless our entire family.
King Nebuchadnezzar issued an order that everyone should bow down before the statue of gold and worship it. Whoever does not obey that order will be thrown into a blazing furnace.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego served the Lord God of Israel and they did not bow down to the statue of gold to worship it as the king ordered.
Dan 3:17 If the God whom we serve is able to save us from the blazing furnace and from your power, then he will.[a] 18 But even if he doesn’t, Your Majesty may be sure that we will not worship your god, and we will not bow down to the gold statue that you have set up.”
They knew their very lives were at risk but they chose to obey the laws of God. They were thrown into the furnace of blazing fire but the Lord God saved them.
We must obey the word of God;
Even on the hardest moments.
We must not serve other gods;
Even when we have problems.
We must trust in our God;
Cause he will always be there for us.
We must never doubt;
He will take care of us when we need Him.
We must be sure;
The Lord God will save us.
The coloring time.
Daniel 1:17 “As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom…”
God blessed Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah also known as Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, giving them a special gift: the gift of Knowledge. When we have the skill to learn we grow in wisdom and knowledge. We learn to keep everything good that we are taught and to exclude the wrong things. We absorb the teachings in school and learn to elaborate and develop even more the lessons.
We learn to follow the good examples and roll models in our lives and discard the bad ones.
But why did the Lord God give the skills to the 4 young men?
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Prov 9:10”
Daniel and his friends feared God with all their hearts and minds. They Obeyed His word and followed His commandments. So, let’s fear God!
