Why You Should Search For Wisdom

Why You Should Search For Wisdom

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CHILDREN –

The word search is a verb; it is an act of looking for something. Looking for something with passion and not giving up until it is found.

There are several things that the word of God encourages us to search for, wisdom is one of it.

It’s very important that we seek to be wise as God’s children!

There are several reasons why you should search for wisdom as a child of God. One will be that it helps us to represent our father better because wisdom makes us exceptional.

The book of proverbs has helped identify more reasons you should search for wisdom, and want to be wise.

I hope you are set to learn something new this morning! Let’s look at our focus verse.

Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.” –Proverbs 8:34-36 (NIV)

First of all, let me show you something interesting about this verse. You don’t get wisdom by wishing you were wise, or just praying to be wise. Wisdom comes by;

1. Watching Daily

2. Waiting daily                                         

These two things denote taking efforts to search out something, and patients because it will take time to attain a certain level of wisdom, but that’s if you put in the work daily.

So, the question this morning is why should you and I search for wisdom?

  • Whoever finds wisdom will find life.
  • Whoever finds wisdom will receive favour from God.
  • Whoever doesn’t find wisdom will eventually harm himself.
  • Whoever hates wisdom loves death.

PRAYER:
Father, help me to search for wisdom

ACTION PLAN:
Memorize the Focus verse for today

DECLARATION:
I am wise, I search for wisdom every day, and I have the help of God

What Wisdom Can Do For You – Part 2

What Wisdom Can Do For You – Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CHILDREN-

Continued from yesterday…

4. Wisdom gives Strength. Every child of God needs strength, strength to do the will of God. Sometimes doing what the bible says isn’t cool, especially when you want to impress your friends. So you will agree with me that strength is important in our day-to-day lives. Wisdom will give you and I this strength that’s what the bible says, when you have the wisdom of God then you will also have the strength to do the right thing at the right time.

Let’s refresh our memory with our focus verses;

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. Prov 8:14-18 (KJV)

5. Wisdom will make you reign as Kings do. God created us to reign on earth as kings, all of God’s sons and daughters are kings and queens, but you need God’s wisdom to function in your calling. Kings rule not only because they are called kings, but it’s also because they have the wisdom it takes to rule a kingdom, God wants you to be wise so he can trust you even as a child with certain things, you aren’t too young to be called king.

6. Wisdom will make you decree Justice like Princes. Justice is what God desires for his children on earth. Do you know what justice means? It means upholding what is right in all situations. Our God is a God of Justice, and he wants us to represent him on earth, so we all also have to be a people of justice. How do we decree justice? It’s by having God’s wisdom.

7. You will be able to rule as noble people do. God’s wisdom will not only help you to rule, it will also help people around you to identify you as a noble person whom they can learn from. It’s easy to identify wise people; you will be easily identified if you have the wisdom of God.

Some other things to know about wisdom are;

  • Wisdom loves those who seek it.                                                                                     
  • Those that seek wisdom early find it.

That’s the end of our teaching today, I pray God gives you His wisdom in Jesus name.

PRAYER:
Father in the name of Jesus, please give me your wisdom.

ACTION PLAN:
Memorize the focus verses for today.

DECLARATION:                               
I have the wisdom of God, sound wisdom is mine.

What Wisdom Can Do For You

What Wisdom Can Do For You

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CHILDREN-

Dear child, for a while now, I have been talking to you about wisdom. Our lessons have been from the book of Proverbs, we have had to digest King Solomon’s words bit by bit.

Continuing on our wisdom series, today I want to tell you what wisdom can do for you.

Let’s take a look at our focus verses!

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. Prov 8:14-18 (KJV)

1. Wisdom gives good Counsel. Everyone needs good counsel, it’s even more important for you as God’s baby to have good counsel because everyone around you looks to you for Christ-like morals and standards. What then is good counsel? Another word for counsel is advice, there is good and bad advice. What wisdom does is that it helps to know which is good and the kind of advice to reject.

2. You will get Sound wisdom. Reading God’s word will give you sound wisdom which means wisdom that is exceptional. You know how you admire certain persons when they speak, when they say things that leave every other person wondering how they are so smart, that’s another thing wisdom will do for you.

3. Wisdom gives Understanding. To understand means to clearly know something to the extent of explaining it in your own words. As a child, there are certain things that you might not be able to understand by yourself, but with the wisdom of God, you will have an understanding of all things. This is what makes you different from everyone around you.

To be continued.

PRAYER:
Father in the name of Jesus, please give me your wisdom.

ACTION PLAN:
Memorize the focus verses for today.

DECLARATION:                               
I have the wisdom of God, sound wisdom is mine.

What Does It Mean To Fear God –Part 2

What Does It Mean To Fear God –Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

CHILDREN-

Dear precious child, yesterday I began talking to you about what it means to Fear God. The fear Of God is the beginning of wisdom, and God wants you as his child to be wise, this is why the bible further explains what it means to fear God.

To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. –Proverbs 8:13 (NIV)

Yesterday we discussed two of these points mentioned in our focus verse:

1. The fear of God is to Hate Evil.

2. The fear of God is to Hate Pride and Arrogance.

Let’s continue today with the remaining two!

3. To Fear God is to Hate Evil Behaviour.

What exactly is evil behaviour? Things such as lying, stealing, gossiping, malice, unforgiveness, etc, these and more are more things like this are evil behaviour. There is a long list of commandments called the Ten Commandments that God gave the children of Israel through Moses. This is an indication that God wants us to act right all the time, if we as his children say we fear him, then you and I must hate any behaviour that is evil.

4. To Fear God is to Hate Perverse Speech.

Perverse speeches are wrong words, words that don’t build, but rather tire down, slang that are not godly. Children of God shouldn’t be found speaking vulgar languages or using slang that doesn’t represent Jesus. You are God’s ambassador on earth; everything you do should represent God.

This is the end of our lesson on what it means to fear God, make sure you put to use what you have learned.

PRAYER:
Father in the name of Jesus, I pray that I have the fear of God in Jesus name.

ACTION PLAN:
Decide to put in your best in all you do today

DECLARATION:                               
I have the fear of God, I hate evil all the days of my life.

What Does It Mean to Fear God

What Does It Mean to Fear God

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Dear child, you have been taught that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Whoever wants to be wise must first start by learning what it means to fear God, and deliberately walk in that fear, putting God first before every decision.

Today I’d like to show you more things about the fear of God. Let’s take a look at our focus verse for today!

To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. –Proverbs 8:13 (NIV)

This verse listed some things God wants us his children to take note of. The fear of God means to; hate evil, to hate pride and arrogance, to hate evil behaviours, and to hate perverse speech. Let’s pick these things one after the other, shall we?

1. The fear of God is to Hate Evil.

The word evil means being wicked, and harming people. The God we serve is a good God, his thought for everyone is to do us good. You can’t be a child of God and think of harming the people around you. The proof that you are a Christian is that you love your neighbour, and everyone around you just like Jesus commanded.

2. The fear of God is to Hate Pride and Arrogance.

Pride and Arrogance are similar words; it is the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself, having an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities. Humility and kindness are very important virtues for us as God’s children, you might be smarter or prettier than the people around you, but that doesn’t mean you are better than they are. Jesus lived a humble life on earth, that’s what every child of God should do too.

To be continued…

PRAYER:
Father in the name of Jesus, I pray that I have the fear of God in Jesus name. Amen

ACTION PLAN:
Decide to put in your best in all you do today

DECLARATION:
I have the fear of God, I hate evil all the days of my life.
