Psalm 103:8

The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. 

Psalm 103:8 NIV

 

Motions

Use hand motions as you say the verse.

Conversation

  • How would you describe God? Old? Far away? Angry? Hard to talk to? This verse is how God describes himself.

  • Who is the most compassionate person you know? What makes them compassionate?

  • Describe the word grace.

  • Who in this room has a temper? What happens when you get mad? Slow to anger is the opposite of having a temper.  What does the opposite of having a temper look like?

  • How much love do you think of when you picture ‘abounding in love’? Use something in the universe to try to describe it.

Context

  • Look up together and read Psalm 103. For younger kids read verses 3, 8, 11, 12, 13

  • Pick one thing you learn or love about God from this passage.

  • This is the most repeated verse in the Old Testament.  It is how God describes himself to Moses as He meets with Moses on Mount Sinai in Exodus 34:6.  It can teach us a lot about God.

Consider

  • Take a moment to think about how much God loves you.  Is that what you think about when you think about God? He loves you so much he doesn’t want you to live separate from Him. 

Erase-A-Word

Psalm 23:4 NIV

Younger kids can say the part of the verse in [ ]

Motions

Conversation

  • Why is this person not afraid? Do you think his life is easy? He has no problems?

  • What are some things you are afraid of?

  • What do you think a shepherd uses a rod for? What about a staff? The rod was used to protect against wild animals. The staff was used to guide the sheep and keep them from wandering away.

  • Why would the rod and staff be a comfort?

Context

  • Look up together and read Psalm 23. Does anyone remember hearing this before?

  • It compares God to a shepherd and a wonderful host.  What are some of the words that help you see him as a shepherd or a host?

  • This is one of the most popular Psalms.  Why do you think people like it? What are some lines that would speak to people?

Consider

Context

  • The Psalms talk alot about God being a refuge.  It uses words such as Rock, Fortress, Stronghold, Shelter, etc.

  • Read Psalm 46:2,3. In these verses the world seems to be falling apart.  How is God a refuge when it doesn’t seem like he is protecting us from all the bad things?

Consider

  • Is there any person on earth that is not wonderfully made?

Psalm 25:4,5

[Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths.] Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. 

Psalm 25:4,5 NIV

Younger kids can say the part of the verse in [ ]

Motions

Use hand motions as you say the verse.

Conversation

  • How do we figure out God’s ways or learn his paths?

  • How do you make God your teacher?

  • What makes your favorite teacher a great teacher?

  • Who is smarter than God?, Who is more loving than God?, Who cares more than God? Why don’t we make Him our favorite teacher?

Context

Psalm 25 is a poem with each line beginning with a letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.  Therefore the Psalm doesn’t have a pattern of thought that ties it all together.  They are random lines that describe truths about God. 

Consider

  • Why do we like to choose our own way to go? 

  • Why don’t we want to learn from the smartest person we know? 

  • What makes it hard to learn from God?

1 Peter 5:7

 

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7 NIV

  • Who is the” him” and “he” in this verse? You will find out when you look at the context, but who do you guess?

Review

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? 

Psalm 118:6 NIV

 

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. 

Proverbs 13:20 NIV

Proverbs 13:20

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. 

Proverbs 13:20 NIV

Conversation

  • What do you think walk includes at the beginning of the verse

  • What does it mean to be wise?

  • Would you consider your friends to be wise?

  • What do you think the Bible means by fools?

  • What kind of harm might come if you spend lots of time with fools?

Context There is not a lot of context surrounding this verse in Proverbs.

  • Try to remember Psalm 1:1-6.  It starts with the words “Blessed is the one who . . . “

  • If you can’t remember it, look it up and compare it with this verse. In the New Testament look up 2 Corinthians 6:14-16

  • Why are the people you spend time with important to who you become?

Consider

  • Think about the people you spend the most time with? Do they make wise decisions for the way they live their lives? Do they follow God’s instructions? Are you being a good person to spend time with?

Psalms 118:6

 

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? 

Psalm 118:6 NIV

 

Conversation

  • What does it mean to be afraid of something?

  • What are you most afraid of?

  • How does remembering the Lord is with you help in times of fear?

  • Who is a mortal?

  • How would you compare God’s power to  a mortal’s power?

Context

  • Use a Bible concordance or www.BibleGateway.com to look up “do not be afraid.” Look at how many times the Bible tells people not to be afraid.  Consider what they are afraid of, and why God tells them not to be afraid.

Consider

  • Do people know that you have a big powerful God that is near you or do they think you have a small God?
