Most likely it is based on who you truly are. Not what you live on the outside but who you truly are on the inside. What is most important to you? What do you believe? WHO DO YOU BELIEVE?
WHO IS TRULY YOUR GOD?
If you want to train the kids to make wise choices you must begin
by taking a good look at yourself.
If we attempt to make choices in a vacuum without an awareness of who God is, we are going to be overwhelmed. We will cower and take the easy way out each time.
However, if we stop and acknowledge who God is, we will be empowered. We serve the God of the Universe; He can make the sun stand still; He speaks and the seas are calmed; He can bring a human back to life and He can be everywhere at the same time. Yet, He loves you so much He sent His only Son to earth to pay the price for your sins. Almighty God wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
Do you believe God can overcome any obstacle in your life? Do you believe He will do for you what you need done?
Think back over the past year; how have your beliefs affected the choices you have made? Have you walked by faith or by sight? Do your choices clearly tell the world who your God is?
This week you will guide the kids in discovering who the false gods are in their lives. But they must first know who the one true God is. Who/what are the false gods in your life? Ask the Lord to show you.
