The Fall quarter of the Show Me Jesus curriculum for Younger Elementary is a new quarter of teaching, learning, and growing. The theme of this quarter is Obeying God.
In this 13-week quarter we will be studying prophets and kings from the Old Testament. We will be exploring their lives and learning what it means to obey God. We will look at King Saul and his willfulness, King David and his heartfelt repentance for his sin, the courageous obedience of the prophets Elijah and Daniel, the reluctant submission of Jonah, and the stories of several others. Above all, we will be teaching the children that obedience is not only a command from God, but also our loving response to the Good Shepherd who gave his life for the sheep (John 10:11; 14:15). As we teach this quarter, let these be our goals for our children:
- To learn that although obedience is sometimes hard, trusting Jesus as their Savior from sin means they can obey God.
- To learn how to obey God as they study God’s Word.
- To see God as loving, powerful, and sovereign, leading them to want to obey him.
- To continue in obedience as God works in their hearts.
By the end of this quarter, your children will come to know that our obedience is a privilege and a gift from God, and they will thank him for his grace and goodness. They should have both memorized and experienced these words taken from Psalm 23: “The LORD is my shepherd. . . . He guides me in paths of righteousness. . . . Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
