Sermon Topic: Blessed are The Meek
Note: We desire to partner with parents in helping their children grow spiritually, but we also recognize many of us feel ill-equipped to handle this responsibility. Here are some ideas for incorporating what you are learning each week into faith conversations at home. Choose what fits your family; make it a habit of sharing and praying together.
FUN FAMILY ACTIVITY:
Activity Level: Draw a stick person and write his/her name, Mr. or Miss Arrogant. Ask your children, “what does Mr. or Miss Arrogant look like, and what does he/she say about other people?” Then draw based on their answers. Fancy clothes, a crown, and something that shows he/she is better than others. Saying “I am better than others,” “I am the best person in the world,” “I don’t care about the losers,” or something that lacking considerations for others. Teach children being meek is the opposite of arrogant. A meek person is humble and knows well about his/her weaknesses.
Spiritual level: The meek person in Matthew 5:5 describes the characters to be angry at the right time, self-control, and humility. A God-pleased leader of the world knows the right time to be angry and not to be mad at the wrong time. A self-control person is well controlled by God. Most importantly, humility keeps a leader humble before God and men. When a meek person rules over the world, everyone gets blessed by God.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Matthew 5:5 (ESV)
Dear Heavenly Father, we praise You for You’re God who anoints the leaders of the world. We pray for the leaders of the world to know You personally and follow Your precepts to rule the world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
