Kids of Courage Trust God
In VOM’s Kids of Courage VBS curriculum kids learn that Kids of Courage: Trust God, Get Prepared, Forgive Others, Witness Boldly, and Remember Persecuted Christians. They learn that they, too, can be Kids of Courage.
Read below what the curriculum says about trusting God.
If you trust someone, you know what they say is true. How can we find out what God says? We can read the Bible! In the Bible, God says that those who follow his Son Jesus will have trouble sometimes. But he promises to always be with us, in good times and bad. Kids of Courage believe what God says in the Bible and trust him to be there when they need him and when others need him.
Kids of Courage trust God even when they don’t always understand why God allows certain things to happen in their lives or in the lives of others. The Bible says, “Lean not on your own understanding,” which means we can’t always trust our own understanding of situations, though we can trust God.
To Think About: If we are sick, hurt, or having problems, does that mean we can’t trust God to help us? If everything is going right, does that mean we don’t need to trust God because we can handle things ourselves?
