Helping Children Develop A Lifestyle of Worship
December 29, 2015
Last Sunday, the children’s Sunday School lesson and the day’s sermon focused on the story of the wise men. A continuation of the joy-filled celebration of the birth of our Savior, we explored the journey the wise men took to witness the revelation of God’s promise. Moving westward, the wise men journeyed to worship Jesus. When they arrived they were overjoyed! They presented the baby gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and worshiped him.
As we move through the holiday season and transition back into the normal routine come January 4th, how do we keep the message of Christmas (the fulfilled promise of a Savior) in our hearts and endeavor to live a life filled with worship? The Lifeway curriculum that we use for our children’s Sunday School presented what I found to be a rather simple and cleaver way to help our children develop a lifestyle of worship. Try this at home and witness how it can enhance their worship.
Worship Cube Calendar – A Daily Worship Prompt
1. Make 2 cubes. I used this template.
2. On the first cube, write the days of the week, Monday – Saturday.
3. On the next cube, help your child generate ideas of how he or she can worship Jesus daily. Write each worship activities on a separate face of the cube. Some examples are: pray, write a letter to God, read or recite a Bible verse, talk to a friend about Jesus, sing a song, write a list of things that you are thankful for.
4. Assemble the cubes.
Every day of the week, rotate the cubes to reveal a new prompt for worship.
How do you help your children develop a lifestyle of worship?
