The definition of COURAGE from Time for the Talk

To pursue courage means choosing to do what is right despite the opposition of others or your own desires (often the more difficult enemy)

In our Look at the Bible time, we did two things.

First, a Word Search in Deuteronomy 31 and Joshua 1.  Families got together to see what verses contained one or both of these words (or a form of these words.
STRONG & COURAGE  

Then we talked about other examples of Courage in God's Word.

Old Testament examples of COURAGE

Examples while outside of  the Promised Land:  Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Esther

New Testament Examples of COURAGE

John the Baptist, Paul, Peter and John in Acts 5.

A Recent historical example of COURAGE

Martyn Lloyd Jones, The Doctor Who Became a Preacher. 



We then worked on this week's memory verse, Joshua 1:9, and sang Joshua 1:9 song. 

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:

Get a bottle, sand, very small rocks, and a little bigger rocks.

Which way fills the bottle up more?

1. Sand.  2.  Small rocks, 3.  Bigger rocks.
OR
1.  Bigger rocks.  2.  small rocks.  3.  Sand

Daily Prayer: 

Father God, give us wisdom to know what is right and the courage to reject that which is corrupt. May we hide Your Word in our hearts so that we may not sin against You. May we be like Joshua, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and do the right thing no matter what. Amen
