LIFE APP:  
WISDOM – Finding out what you should do and doing it
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


As you say goodbye this morning, tell your child, "Wisdom is something you search for. Be on the lookout for wisdom today!"

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: Who is the wisest person you know? What do you think makes them wise?
Q & A for parents: What was the best advice someone ever gave you?

 DRIVE TIME


Pick a time that you will be in the car for awhile and start the following conversation, "Do you remember when I told you that you have to search for wisdom and to be on the lookout for it? Well, have you seen someone this week make a wise choice or where have you found wisdom—from a friend, the Bible, or church?"

 BED TIME


Read Luke 2:41-52. It’s easy to think that wisdom is just something you get when you’re older. But kids can grow in wisdom, too! Parents, share about a choice you’ve had to make recently, and how you did (or didn’t) choose wisely. Kids, what is a decision that you’ll need to make soon, like what activity to do or how to treat a sibling? Together, ask God to help you make wise choices every day.
