Memory Verse: “You have done great and wonderful things.” 2 Samuel 7:23, NIRV
Key Question: Who made everything wonderful?
Bottom Line: God made everything wonderful.
Basic Truth: God made me.
Bible Story Focus:
God made people and they are wonderful.
Adam and Eve • Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7, 20-23
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness,so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky,over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Genesis 2:7, 20-23 . 7 Then the Lord God formed a man[c] from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
This week we take a look at Gods most important creation….. us! Adam and Eve were made to look after all God had created on earth. Adam’s first job was to name all of the animals that God had created, to this day we are still meeting new species and kinds of creatures in every domain! God not only made us to work and oversee everything he wanted someone to share the joy in his creation with and as we see today we can find amazing sights all around us. He made each of us so uniquely that not one person will ever be the exact same as another. We hope that by teaching about Adam and Eve that the kids will know that they are loved and have purpose in God to do great and amazing things!
Feel free to use this guide to revisit this lesson throughout your week:
This Week we move into part four to conclude our series Drumline: Respect the Rhythm where our main focus is on Respect– a response to the character of God.
Lastly, we head to 1 Samuel 24 and find David running away from King Saul. Yet, when David had a clean shot at taking out Saul, he decided to respect the position God gave King Saul. David took the high-road and let God take care of the situation between them.
Bottom Line: You respect God when you respect the people He’s put in charge. We can’t only respect people in charge because they have earned our respect. We should show them respect because God made them and God gave them their authority. We need to trust that God has the controls and we have people in place by God for a reason. Though it may seem hard to in many cases we have to relax and trust in him.
