Today's Topic is:
If you look for God you will find Him
What do you do when you can't find something? ("look for it"), How do you look? Does it take time? Do you have to think about good places to look? If you lost your favorite toy, where would you look for it? Did you know that God wants us to look for Him?
Have a treasure hunt. Hide some small treasures around your house (hint: reuse old small toys the kids have not played with, clean out the bottom of the toy box, could also use small candies), give kids clues to find them. Sample clues, "It is in the place where you sleep" or "Look inside the dollhouse." or "Under the blue train." Have the kids hunt for a few different treasures. Then read the Bible Verses.
Proverbs 8:17b, "Those who diligently seek me will find me."
Jeremiah 29:13, "You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
God does want us to look for Him. He is the best treasure! We can look for God by reading the Bible, praying, and watching for things God does in our lives, like helping us get well when we are sick, giving us good food to eat and beautiful flowers to look at. God tells us in our Bible verses that all we have to do is look for him and really want to find Him and then we will! It is not always easy to see God, but when we look for Him, he will show himself to us.
Dear God, help us to look for you every day. Amen
