Sunday School Snip-It (May 1, 2016)

This weeks story in The Gospel Project for Kids is a little different from most other stories kids hear in Bible study. This week, your kids learned about three entire books of the Bible.

To wrap up this section of Scripture concerning David and his son Solomon, we learned about the poetry and wisdom the Bible offers from Psalms, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes. King David wrote many of the 150 Psalms included in this book. King Solomon wrote much of the Book of Proverbs. Proverbs are short sayings that teach a truth. Since God had granted Solomon great wisdom, much of his writing centered around ways to live a holy life to God. Solomon also wrote in Ecclesiastes why God created the world—so people would worship God and see how good He is.

Wisdom in the Bible is not just words about how to live. God gives us wisdom because He wants us to be like Jesus—in how we live, how we speak, and how we think. We become wise by knowing and loving Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us. (1 Corinthians 1:30)

REMINDER this Sunday, May 1 was the final week of Sunday school until the Fall.
