Last month we emphasized in teaching children to speak kindly towards each other. This month we will continue to strengthen our children to mature in God’s giving character and to lead a life with humility. Wisdom is the knowledge we need to live in this life and to interact with our circumstances and with those around us. At Little Kiwis, we educate our children that God is the true source of all wisdom and is always willing to give it to us when we ask. But there is always meekness to wisdom, as it says here “the humility…comes from wisdom.” Explicitly, we are not wise on our own. We are children of God, dependent on our heavenly Father to give us life, love, peace, joy, and wisdom to live. Therefore, we want our children to have the attentiveness to pray for the wisdom and understanding from above, and to grow up to show this generous, giving God to every soul they encounter.
November Memory Verse: “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.” – James 3:13 (NIV)
