(Peace) True peace comes when we remember that God is on
What robs you of peace? (Worry) When we’re worried
we’re thinking about ourselves and the problem we’re
having. To stop worrying, we need to get our eyes off ourselves
and to remember that God has everything under control.
What is another big peace robber? (Fear)
What a wonderful gift Jesus has given us --
peace of mind and heart. We no longer have anything to fear.
Whenever we find ourselves in the dark or in the storms of
life, Jesus is with us.

Object Lesson: Have a few oranges to pass out..
Take out a knife and slowly, slowly begin to slice up the oranges.
Take your time! Lots of time! When you notice them becoming impatient,
ask: “Can anyone tell me what patience is?” (Allow
time for response and different ideas.) The dictionary tells
us patience is the bearing of pain, misfortune, or annoyance without
anger, irritation, or complaint. So patience is going through something
very hard, or just something very annoying, without getting angry
or complaining. “What is the opposite of patience?”
(Impatience!) Did it make you irritated when I was taking
so much time to pass out the orange slices to you? What are some
things you go through each day that make you impatient? (Write
their thoughts on the chalk board or paper provided)
Each day we will face situations that test our patience. These
can be small things, like someone taking their time when you are
in a hurry or very big things, like waiting on God to heal a family
member. As we learn to be patient in the small things, God will
prepare us to go through the bigger things.
As our Memory verse tells us there are no shortcuts with growing
crops, no amount of yelling will make your Moringa tree grow any
quicker! . In the same way a farmer can’t do a thing to hurry
his crops up.
In ancient Palestine, the farmer counted on the rains around the
end of October to soften up the land so he could begin his ploughing
and planting. Then in March or April, when the plants began to ripen,
the massive spring rains would come, assuring a successful harvest.
In this process, the farmer had to wait….patiently. Panicking
wouldn’t help. Crying wouldn’t help. Yelling at friends
and family wouldn’t make it come quicker. Questioning God’s
love along the way couldn’t even squeeze one drop out of the
sky. All the farmer could do was wait, pray, and trust – i.e.
Knowing that the rain will come, the farmer realizes that he may
as well wait for it joyfully and peacefully with a smile on his
face. All fruits of the Spirit.
When we are struggling to be patient with another person, we should
remember God’s patience toward us. Do you think God has a
short fuse? (No) No, our God is very patient. In the Bible,
it says that love is patient and kind. God is love and he is very
patient. And this is what Nehemiah 9:17 says, “You
are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become
angry. God is slow to anger. God has a very long fuse. Thank Him
for that right now!
The question isn’t how much longer must we wait? The question
is how should we wait? The answer: PATIENTLY. Because God says that
“Good Things Come to Those Who Wait…Patiently.”
King David said in Psalm 46:10 “Be still,
and know that I am God.” Trust that the God who works all
things out for your good will guide your life along the path it’s
supposed to go, yes, but also at the pace it’s supposed to
You ought to be patient with your family Has your mom or dad ever
frustrated you? Maybe she's cranky in the morning; maybe he's a
grouch when he gets home from work. Parents can be that way. The
Bible assumes the same thing. It warns parents to not "provoke
[their] children to wrath". Why? Because we're liable to do
just that. When your parents are having "one of those days"-you
need to be patient with them. Don't argue with them or sulk; be
as quiet and sweet as you can and wait for the mood to change.
Your friends can get on your nerves. The more time you spend with
them, the more likely they'll annoy you. How do you avoid this?
How do you stay good friends with your friends? By being patient.
Strangers can also be very annoying. You're in a hurry and they
won't get out of the way.
Enemies can make you mad. They bully you, or lie about you, or
do other bad things to hurt you. You need to be patient with all
these people. Do you know why? Because Jesus Christ was! And He's
your example. His parents embarrassed Him; His brothers hated Him;
His friends disappointed Him; His enemies persecuted Him. But He
bore patiently with them all.
