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

 MORNING TIME


Write on your preteen's mirror, "Wisdom is acting on something you know you should do."

 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 ask the following questions, "Do you remember what I wrote on your mirror this week? Wisdom is acting on something you know you should do. Is there anything you are having a hard time doing that you know you should do? Who can you go to seek wisdom on this?" Prompt your preteen to look to their small group leader, trusted friend, or Bible.

 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.
