May 2018: SOURCE CODE

Grade School Kids Ministry Lessons for the month of May.


SERIES DESCRIPTION

God wants what is best for us. He has called us His children, and given us great things. Because we know that God is good, WE CAN BE HONEST. Lying and cheating are a response to fear. They are what people do if they think no one else will take care of them. But when you trust in God, when you know His love, you have a different response. You can be truthful.

Beware of Scam

Bible Story: Beware of Scam (Naaman and Elisha’s Servant, Gehazi) • 2 Kings 5

Bottom Line: When you are not truthful, you lose trust.

Key Question: Why is it important for people to trust you?

Memory Verse: “Anyone who lives without blame walks safely. But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.” Proverbs 10:9, (NIrV)

Life App: Honesty—Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do

Basic Truth: I need to make the wise choice.

Key Question: Why is it important for people to trust you? Preteens are just starting to realize that their actions have implications on people around them.

We start our month on honesty, helping them realize that what they say or don’t say impacts whether or not people trust them. And why that matters. We start the month in 2 Kings 5 and learn more about the prophet Elisha and his servant named Gehazi. After Elisha helped Naaman, Gehazi saw Elisha turn down an extravagant gift from Naaman. But Gehazi decided that he could take advantage of the situation and take the gift for himself. He went behind Elisha’s back, denied his actions, and inevitably lost Elisha’s trust.

Bottom Line: When you’re not truthful you lose trust. If you continually tell lies and hurt people with dishonesty, eventually you will lose the trust of those around you. We hope kids realize that honesty helps them build relationships with others.

Logic Error

Bible Story: Logic Error (David and Ahimelek) • 1 Samuel 21-22

Key Question: When have you seen a lie hurt someone?

Bottom Line: When you’re not truthful, you hurt others.

Memory Verse:“Anyone who lives without blame walks safely. But anyone who takes a crooked path will get caught.” Proverbs 10:9, (NIrV)

Life App: Honesty—Choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do

Basic Truth: I need to make the wise choice.

Key Question: When have you seen a lie hurt someone? For preteens, it’s often easier to start with an example you’ve seen in someone else before seeing how you’ve personally done the same thing. We pray that as kids start with a question about how they’ve seen dishonesty effect friends and family, they’ll notice how they’ve hurt others with their lies and figure out a way to choose honesty for their own life.

Next, we look to 1 Samuel 21-22. David is on the run from King Saul and escapes to the town of Nob where he asks the priest Ahimelek for help. Ahimelek asks some questions, but instead of telling the truth, David spins a tale that ends up getting Ahimelek killed when King Saul found out. David found out the hard way that lies have severe consequences.

Bottom Line: When you’re not truthful, you hurt others. We tend to think that if we lie, we’re only helping ourselves get out of trouble or get something we want. But lies have consequences. Often those repercussions extend beyond ourselves to the people we lie to or lie about. We pray that kids will realize that telling the truth keeps everyone from experiencing unnecessary pain.
