January Week 5

Jan 30, 2022
We close out the month with another one of Solomon’s
vivid word pictures in Proverbs 25:16. We help kids find
out what happens when we indulge and eat too much.
This proverb isn’t just about how much we eat. Kids will
learn that too much anything, even if it’s a good thing,
can have serious consequences.

Bottom Line: Know when to stop. Knowing when to
stop isn’t always easy for kids. Often, it’s a parent or
teacher who helps them realize it’s time to stop what
they’re doing and take a break. We hope that kids start
to see that stopping something—even if it’s fun—can
be the wisest choice they can make. We also want them
to know they don’t need to do this on their own. God
can help them know when to stop and give them the
strength to do it.
