My way to prep for a Bible study or sermon is to mull it over for a couple of weeks. Then on the Thursday before the Sunday, I sit down and type it out. This week it didn’t happen. I didn’t have a clear direction. I spent Thursday writing drafts, but I didn’t like it.

On Thursday night, as I was having my quiet time, I asked God again, what is the most important truth the children need to know this Father’s day? There are so many ways I can go with this. Then God impressed upon me that I need to highlight the character of the Father. I was pretty excited about it. I spent my QT reading about what God revealed about who he is.

On Friday, I wrote out the sermon. I feel good about it.

It’s only a 20 minute sermon for the children, and no one would appreciate it more than me! It will come off very simple, but to me, it’s deep. The children won’t know how much teaching them actually makes me grow.

I heard on the radio that obedience to God is evidence of our faith in God. My sermon reminds me that we would not obey God unless we have have full confidence in God’s love for us.
