To find all the other weeks, please go here.
Wow, what a first week! Conner was so excited to start reading the Bible! I hope you enjoy it as much as we are!! Then again, who doesn't enjoy a closer walk with the Lord!
Here are the links for the documents you will need this week:
Week 1 notebooking pages.
Read Genesis 1-2
God's work is always perfect and good. He has made everything for His own glory. We need to remember to praise him for everything.
Read John 1:1-3; Psalm 8 & 104
God made us in His own image so that we may love Him and glorify Him forever. Have them glue a picture of themselves on the top of the page.
Sometimes I will be putting in some of the questions of the Westminster Shorter Catechism for kids. It is based on reformed theology and has some good information that I think all Kingdom kids should learn to help them grow. Proverbial Homemaker is doing a series on that if you are interested!
1. Who made you? God.
2. What else did God make? God made all things.
3. What did God give Adam and Eve besides bodies? Souls. Gen 2:7
4. Where is God? Everywhere.
Read Genesis 3-5
How awesome it might of been if Eve had never eaten from the Tree of Knowledge. We will find out one day when we make it to Heaven! In Genesis 4 we also learn that even though we may give back to the Lord, if we don't do it with a good heart, it is done in vain.
Read Genesis 6-7
Such powerful words. In the midst of all the wickedness, Noah found favor with God. Noah still loved and obeyed God when everyone else wasn't. Even though he was mocked, he stood steadfast and listened to the Lord. Do you think you will be able to stand on the truth and not be concerned with the ways of the world?
Read Genesis 8-9; Psalm 12
I still get a chill every time I see a rainbow. To know that it is from God and is a sign of His everlasting promise! Noah and his family were on the ark for 1 year and 10 days. The first thing he did when he got off the ark was to build an alter and give thanks to the Lord. We should always remember to thank the Lord for everything He does without delay.
At the close of Chapter 9, we learn that even Noah sinned.
Nimrod, who we learned in Gen 10:8-10, was a great leader and wanted to form a nation with his people in the land of Shiner. The problem, the thought they could be bigger than God. They put their trust in the tower, instead of in God. This is when God gave set all the different languages of the world into play and scattered the people. As He always does, the Lord reigns victory over the wicked!
I pray you have an awesome week with your kids!! Mine couldn't wait to read it each day. Stay tuned for next week when we continue through Genesis!
