In our Big group time (5-10-year-olds), before going to our individual classes, we will finish our 3 part Bible study on Psalms 139, looking more closely at verses 13-14 and 17-18. These verses talk about how God took such care and spent special attention creating each of us and that he has good thoughts when he thinks of us.
To help children understand His good thoughts towards us, how about next time you are at the beach, scoop up some sand and have them try to ‘count’ the grains of sand. Then remind them of these verses: How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
This is an excellent opportunity to teach your child about God and the world he created when you are out in his creation!
