Children: Wisdom

Treasure Hunt

What’s more precious than jewels but available to all who seek it? Screams to get your attention but eludes you if you ignore it? Has a definite starting point but knows no end? Here’s a hint:

YES! It’s wisdom, which is finding out what you should do and doing it. God says if you accept His words and store up His commands inside you, tune your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding, call out for insight and search for it as you would for hidden treasure, then you will find out how to know Him. He is the one who gives wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, the one who stores up success for His followers, the one who shields them from harm, guards their paths, and leads them in the right direction. (See Proverbs 2:1-11. In fact, see all of Proverbs for a whole trove of the treasures of wisdom.) Put that way, who in his right mind wouldn’t dig wisdom? Dig for wisdom? Dig and dig for wisdom?

So in September, we’ll be on the hunt for gems of wisdom, helping kids understand that God wants to give you wisdom. Wisdom is worth searching for. If you want to be wise, hang out with wise people. And wisdom is knowing AND doing.

So get your shovel out and let’s go dig for wisdom. It’s worth it.

September is a short month for us. We only have two weeks but during those two weeks, we are going to take a look at wisdom.

Wisdom: finding out what you should do and doing it.
