God knows what is best for everyone

Posted by Central Preschool

Jonah had a choice to make. Should he do what God says and go to Ninevah? Or should he get on a boat and run away? After a horrible boat ride, a few nights in a fish, and one spit up later, Jonah had a change of heart and did what God said to do. God knew what was best for Jonah and the people of Ninevah.

September 2023 Memory Verse

September 2023 OVERVIEW

Memory Verse:

"God...knows everything." (1 John 3:20)

Key Question:

Who knows what's best for you?

Bottom Line:

God knows what's best for me.

An adult makes about 35,000 choices every day, but adults are not the only ones with choices to make. Children have their fair share of choices too—about 3,500 of them. Every. Single. Day. Should I eat this snack or that snack? Should I play with this toy or that toy? Should I do this and share or do that and keep it all for myself?

Knowing that our preschooler’s 3,500 daily choices will one day turn into 35,000 daily choices is why we want to teach preschoolers that, when they have a choice between This or That, they can trust that God knows what’s best for them.
