Where did Solomon’s wisdom come from? (God.)
Do you think God could give you wisdom if you asked for it?
Can you remember a time when you were afraid? What did you do?

Week 3: Road Trip – Patience
Main Verse: Proverbs 14:29
Life Application: PATIENCE – Waiting until later for what you want now
Today’s Topic: When you think you can’t wait, keep your cool.
Ask: What do you do when it’s hard to wait?
Drive Time: Plan a fun night as a family for the end of the month and tell them they can invite a friend. When you are in the car, talk through the details of what you want to do. Challenge them to only talk about it while in the car and if they can be patient and wait well, the more fun you will plan for them. Remind them that this is an example of something that is worth the wait!
Remember this:“Wait for the Lord. Be strong and don’t lose hope. Wait for the Lord!” Psalm 27:14, NIrV
We at EGC Kids anticipate each and every Sunday the joy of working with your children and showing them the love of Christ. We hope we can support you in prayers during the week. Please let any of us know how we can better serve you and your children.
