CHILDREN’S DEVOTIONS FOR THE WEEK OF:
LESSON TITLE: Taming the Tongue
THEME: God wants us to watch what we
SCRIPTURE: James 3:1-12
Welcome to Bible Time for Kids! Bible Time for Kids is a series of
daily devotions for children and their families. Our purpose is to
supplement our Sunday morning curriculum and give you an
opportunity to encourage your children to develop a daily devotional
life. We hope you and your family will be blessed as you study
God's Word together.
This week in Children’s Church we learned about Taming the Tongue.
The theme was “God wants us to watch what we say.” Our words
can either bless others or be the source of a lot of problems. The
Bible has a lot to say about our words. As Christians our desire is to
become more and more like Jesus. Part of that is learning how to speak
the way He would speak.
James tells us that the tongue is very powerful and hard to control. In
order for us to watch what we say we need to be filled with the Holy
Spirit. Jesus will help us to watch what we say and use our words to
encourage and to help others.
The section of scripture that we studied was James 3:1-12. The
following five devotions are based on either the scripture and/or the
theme for Sunday’s lesson. As a starting point it would be good for you
to review these verses with your children.
These devotions are designed to help you reinforce Sunday’s lesson
throughout the week with your children, provide some more ideas for
the application of God’s Word in your children’s lives and provide a tool
to help in family devotions.
Obviously children at various age levels will respond to the devotional in
different ways. You may want to add your own ideas to these to make
them more age appropriate.
May the Lord bless you as you study His Word together!
