VBS lessons for all ages!


As I sit here wondering what subject I should blog on today, I am troubled. Satan is wrecking havoc in so many lives and in our world. What else can I reflect on.

Aww, it is VBS week and I am priviledged to work with the children in the science/craft area. Already I have received so many hugs and new friends. I have the priviledge of building confidence in our children in the word as we look at Proverbs and the parts of our body.

Did you know that Proverbs has lessons for even our children.

Ears: Listen Up! God wants us to listen to His Word. We learned of the tubes in our ears and the fluid that travels through them that we can keep our balance and of the tiny hairs that transmit the sound to our brain.  How amazing, thank you Jesus for my hearing that I might know your perfect Word. Proverbs 19:20 "Listen to wise counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days."

Hands: Wake Up! Get to work for the Lord;  Kaylee taught us about our fingers and the "receptors" sending information to our brain.  She then taught two phrases in  English Sign language. Thank you Jesus that we have hands for those who cannot speak for commuication and to do the "work" you have for us to do. Proverbs 16:3 "Commit your works to the Lord."

Tongue: Build Up! Speak good not bad or evil of others. Last night we learned about the taste buds on our tounge and how amazingly it was created so that we can taste, salty, sugared and sour foods and drinks. Then we talked about speaking good not bad words. Thank you Jesus that we can taste the good things in life and share the good words with others. Proverbs 18:21 "Death and life are in the power of the tongue."

Heart: Check up! Tonight our children are going to learn about their hearts, Hope and Kennadi are even going to help them listen to their own heart beats! We're going to talk about "trusting in Lord with all our hearts." We will make plaques with crosses to remind us how much Jesus loved us! Thank you Jesus for loving us and for our amazing hearts that we might feel and give love."  Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding."

Feet: Wise up! On Thursday Ashlyn will talk about the receptors in our feet. Then she'll demonstrate with magnets things that stick and things that won't. We'll talk about which way we can be pulled, "good ways," and "bad ways." Thank you Jesus for the feet that carry us to the good places in life." Proverbs 13:20 "He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed."

Simple lessons that we as adults need to "hear" too! 

We do not know when Jesus will return, but we do know that we are to be ready. 

What is it today that is preventing you from "hearing;" "working;" and "speaking," "beating" and "walking" for the Lord?
