Talk with your child about the following:
We know that the ocean is VERY big, isn’t it. It holds more water than this bucket, than this cup, and even this pool (or bath tub). Our memory verse this week talks about the oceans. It comes from the book of Isaiah, and Isaiah asks us a question. He asks if we know who can hold the oceans in his hands? Do you know the answer? Its God! See even though the ocean is very big, God is much bigger. He made the oceans, and all the animals in them. He was able to hold all the water in the oceans the way mommy is holding this water in her hands! God is very big, and he loves us very much. We need to remember that no matter what happens we have a very big God who loves us very much!
Questions to ask:
- How can we glorify God? By loving Him, His commands and His creation!
- Sing “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”
