WEEK 1 (April 1)

WEEK 1

We start the month with The Bible. No, that wasn’t
a typo. Think about it, in some ways the entire Bible is lesson in patience. Not because it takes so long to read from cover to cover, but because often people are seen waiting . . . for God to speak, for the rescuer to arrive. That’s why we kick off April with the Easter story and the story of the Bible that introduces us
to Jesus—His life, death, and most importantly His resurrection. A fitting way to celebrate that Jesus is alive!

Bottom Line: Jesus is alive! God sent Jesus to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. This week, we want to be sure that every child leaves knowing how much God loves them and made a way for them to have a relationship with Him forever.

 

 

WEEK 2 (April 8)

WEEK 2

For our first week focused on patience, we look to
1 Samuel 1:6–2:1 where we discover the story of Hannah. She had waited years for a child. Rather than become frustrated and angry toward God, she prays and tells Him all about it. When God answers her prayer, she gives her son back to God. He honored her waiting and blessed her with even more children.

Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, talk to God about it. It’s important for us all to remember that talking to God about waiting will help us stay patient through whatever circumstance we might face. He may not change our circumstance, but He’ll give the strength to keep waiting well.

 

Week 3 (April 15)

WEEK 3

There’s an important patience principle King Solomon wrote in Proverbs 14:29. Anyone who is patient has great understanding. But anyone who gets angry quickly shows how foolish they are (NIrV). How we respond to waiting shows others our character. Getting frustrated and angry doesn’t make the wait any less; it just makes us look foolish.

Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, keep your cool. Sometimes when you’re waiting, becoming angry and frustrated with others is the first thing that pops into our minds. But when it comes to waiting, often there’s very little we can do to make the wait any less. While you’re waiting, don’t make yourself look foolish by taking it out on the people around you.

 

Week 4 (April 22)

WEEK 4

In week four of April, we head to Exodus 32:1–35where we find the Israelites at the foot of Mount Sinai. Instead of obeying God and waiting for Moses to come down off the mountain, the entire nation of Israel grew impatient. They built a golden calf and began to worship it instead of worshiping God. Their lack of patience had some severe consequences.

Bottom Line: When you think you can’t wait, think about what’s true. It’s easier to wait when you remember all the times God has helped you before. You can trust Him, knowing that He’ll help you wait.
