Elementary School Virtue Brief May 28

Elementary School (True Grit)

This Sunday we wrap up our month with a Bible teaching that helps us understand the principle of work. As we work, we can be determined to finish the job right and with a good attitude, because we know we’re always serving God. God pays attention to all the work that we do, even the smallest things. And it really pleases Him when we do those things with a good attitude! So when we’re tempted to whine about a task, or give up because it’s too hard, we can remember this month’s memory verse: “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9, NIrV Keep on doing math homework. Keep on helping with chores around the house. Keep on being kind to our friends and neighbors. Not because we’re motivated by the best grade, a higher allowance, or feeling popular, but because we know that our determination honors God and He knows the end of story of all the work we do.

Bible Story: True Grit (a principle of work) • Colossians 3:23-24

Bottom Line: Keep going because God knows the end of the story.

Memory Verse: “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.” Galatians 6:9, NIrV

Life App: Determination—deciding it’s worth it to finish what you’ve started.

Basic Truth: I need to make the wise choice.
