Basic Truth: God loves me.
Key Question: Who is always with you?
Bottom Line: God is always with me.
Memory Verse: "God is with you wherever you go." - Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
 
God loves your child.  Believe it or not, He loves your child even more than you do!  Now that's a lot of love.  God wants your child to know that He is with them always. He's there when they're afraid; when things are hard to do; when they're happy; when they need something.  God is always with them.  Our hope is that your child will grow up truly believing that God is always with them, wherever they go.
 
Guess what Mom and Dad, God is with you wherever you go too.  You are not alone!  God wants you to know that he is always with you.  He's with you when you are afraid; when you're exhausted; when work gets hard.  he knows your needs and can meet them.  Begin today speaking out loud your belief that God is always with you.

I believe it’s our responsibility to communicate to a generation the need for them to demonstrate who God is simply by being distinctive in a world that needs to see people actively pursuing peace, actively building bridges and working hard to make sure they fix whatever’s wrong in their relationships. That’s why we are taking all the complex ideas about peace and simply boiling them down to what we think is the most simplistic form for a kid or a child to understand and apply. We define peace as this: proving you care more about others than winning an argument.
 
I think it’s important that we teach kids to take the first step. I think it’s important that we teach kids a response to conflict that’s in line with the nature of God. I believe if we want a generation to see who God is and for kids to grow up demonstrating the character of God, then we have to talk about peace. We have to talk about what Paul was trying to explain when he said let us do all we can to live in peace. We have to talk about what Solomon was trying to explain when he said don’t start an unnecessary argument. We have to explain what God was trying to illustrate to us by sending His own Son to die to build a bridge between us and God, to resolve the conflict that existed and to put us at peace with God. I believe it’s true that you are never more like the character of God than when you’re working to build a bridge in relationships with those that God loves.
