Year 1, Summer: Lesson 10
What we learned today
Big Idea: God’s word has power. (part 2)
2 Kings 22—23v23 Scrolls containing God’s Word were discovered during the temple restoration. Josiah made sure the scrolls were read to the people. The powerful words led the people to destroy their idols and continue to repair the Lord’s temple.
Where we're headed next time
Big Idea: God is the living God
Daniel 6 The king passed a new law that forced the people to pray to him only. Daniel loved God and prayed only to Him. When the king found out, he had no choice but to put Daniel in the lions’ den. God protected Daniel. He was saved, and the living God was praised.
Dig into God’s word.
Read Daniel 6v13–23.
After reading, remind your child that it was the living God who rescued Daniel from the mouths of the lions.
Connect as a family
Your child can distinguish emotions based on facial expressions and can mimic those expressions. As you read Daniel’s story, allow your child to make happy, scared, angry, sad, and surprised faces during appropriate parts of the story.
Did Daniel stop praying to God when the king made the new law?
No, Daniel continued to pray to God three times a day!
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
Open a Bible and read Daniel 6:26b over your child: “For he is the living God and he endures forever.”
