Your Grace Kids resources for the week of June 15
Watch this video – God’s Story: Deborah
Read Judges 4 & 5.
Discuss the following questions
Why did God keep rescuing His people if they kept turning away from Him? Guide kids to see that God is faithful and merciful. He loves even those who sin against Him. He still planned to use the Israelites to send Jesus, so He showed His love to them.
Whom does God use in His plans? Guide kids to discuss the fact that God can—and does—use all kinds of people. In the story today, God used a man and two women. He used Israelites and non-Israelites. Remind kids that God is all-powerful and can use anyone in His plans. Help them see that when we have faith, God will do great things in us and through us.
Why does God use people in His plans? Guide kids to see that God doesn’t need our help to do anything, but He lovingly includes us in His good work. We are blessed by the chance to participate in His plan to rescue sinners and glorify Him. By using people, He shows His power to do amazing things through ordinary people.
“In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25 ESV)
