Challenge: To memorize Matthew 5:9 - assigned on 05/18/2019. On 05/25/2019, during the Kids Fellowship, Pastor Cliff tested the children on the genuine effort of practicing this memory verse over the week and to give their testimonies.
Session summary by HOREMOW Kids Member: Dara D.:
When we choose to be peacemakers, we are choosing to be like Jesus because He was always peaceful in what He did. If we are always hot tempered and not making peace, we are out of the way of holiness. Without holiness we can’t be the children of God because God is holy and in Him there is no darkness.
Session summary reflection questions to ask your children:
Testimony: Few children gave their testimonies that they were able to practice this verse both in and out of the home. Some shared their success and others their struggle in the application of this verse. HOREMOW NA KIDS FELLOWSHIP MEMBER was honest in her reporting of a struggle she had with another child and Pastor Cliff was able to guide her on how she should handle it better next time and that she should find the first opportunity to restitute the situation. Another child reported that he struggled in sharing his electronic device with his older brother but for the sake of peace he was able to receive grace to surrender to his elder brother and was able to maintain peace and respect for his elder. Although these steps seem small and trivial there is no one sin bigger than another and if we trespass one we trespass them all.
Challenge: Pastor Cliff encouraged the children to continue putting the past memory verses into practice as well as not to forget that the challenge to achieve 100% obedience to your parents still stands for the rest of May. Once 100% obedience is achieved parents are to help children maintain that standard. Pastor Cliff has assigned this week's memory verse: Proverbs 119: 11 and looks forward to hearing all the testimonies of the outcome of putting this new verse into practice. Not by strength nor by might but by the help of the Holy Spirit and by asking for knowledge and wisdom from God 100% obedience and application of the memory verses is possible. Parents are encouraged to sit down and share the session questions listed above with your children.
Memory verse assignment between 05/25/2019 and 01/01/2019:
Psalms 119:11“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
