From Kids to Adults – Self Control

February’s Curriculum is called Operating System which I believe is quite clever.  See Computers run off an Operating System and they are never perfect.  They need updates in order to keep running well.  How accurate is that to us as humans.  We aren’t perfect and we need constant updates to better ourselves.  At least I know I do, I can’t speak for you.

The theme verse is 2 Peter 1:3 which says “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence”.

Let’s break this verse down a little.  The first half of the verse shares how God’s divine power, He has given us everything we need to live a Godly life.  How amazing is that?  The goal to live a Godly life is as close to perfect as I think we can get.  Yet, God has given everything we need to accomplish it.  Then the second half of the verse tells us how He has given this knowledge to us.  It is through getting to know Him more.  I am always amazed by how God is continuously doing what He can so we can have a better relationship with Him.

What is one thing in your pursuit of Godly living that needs an update?  Spend some time this week thinking about this.  Then put into action some practical ways you can pursue Godly living and encourage your family to do it with you!  We are forever the example to the kids and youth in our lives.
