The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School
classes on Sunday, January 5. We would encourage you to use
the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God’s Sovereignty in the Book of Ruth
Ask your child:
- How was Ruth obedient in hard times? Ruth worked hard and pursued solutions to problems.
- How did God resolve Ruth and Naomi’s problems? How is this relevant to us? God provided a redeemer to rescue them. God provided a Redeemer (Jesus) for us.
Emphasize this principle: God causes all things to work for the good of those that love Him. Therefore, we should trust and obey.
- Trust God in all circumstances.
- Seek to please God in the midst of trials.
Praise: “There Is a Redeemer”
Prepare for next week: Review Exodus-Ruth
Memorize for Jan 5-Feb 2: “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” Colossians 3:16*
