Our weekly visit with Douglas
Goodness models Christ’s actions of love, humility, and forgiveness. It shows integrity, honesty, and compassion towards others. It is only possible through God’s power at work in our heart.
Not only can we see God’s goodness displayed through the way He loves, guides, and cares for us, but we can also see it every day in creation. Creation reflects God—His nature, character, and goodness. Creation points us to the Creator. Our God.
Goodness on the Inside Banana
Bananas, Pens or Sharpie Markers
1. Pass out a banana to each member of your family.
2. Instruct everyone to decorate the outside of their banana.
3. Once everyone is finished decorating, peel open the bananas.
4. Talk about how what we see on the outside appearance of a person doesn’t show us what is on the inside (in their heart). Only God
sees our hearts & only the Holy Spirit working inside of us can create goodness in our heart.
There is a verse in the bible that speaks on this, it says
“God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16 verse 7
Listen to the song below and ask God to fill our hearts with goodness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMEKuEPcCUc

Talk to you child about how long a minute is. What can you do in 60 seconds? Set some challenges and time your child doing them or get them to time you. Can you stay quiet for 1 minute? How many jumps can you go in 60 seconds? Etc
Time to Talk
What can we do if we are feeling worried or anxious about anything? Who could help us?
Children like routine and security and benefit from knowing who they can talk to. You can talk about different people in different settings that they might come into contact with so that they know that there is always somebody there. You could start a ‘Worry Box’ or a ‘Worry Jar’ where the children can write down any worries that they may have and you can talk about them and help to put their mind at ease
Close your eyes and think of your happy place. What can you see? What can you feel? What can you hear? Go to sleep imagining that you are in your happy place! Sweet dreams!
