Paul and Timothy had traveled to Corinth and started a church of believers. After they’d moved to another town, they received word that there was trouble in the Corinthian church, so Paul sent timothy to the Corinthians, with the message of 1 Corinthians 12:12-21, 25-27.
The same message applies to us today. Sometimes we can be envious of other people’s gifts. But each of us is gifted in different ways, and that’s a good thing. Our Bottom Line is: When we use our gifts together, we make a greater difference. You can never be who God needs you to be if you spend all your time being jealous of who God made someone else to be.
Regardless of our age or circumstance, we can work together to use our gifts and serve God. Which is why we’re learning our monthly Memory Verse: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live.” 1 Timothy 4:12a, NIrV
Our song is Young by Seeds Family Worship. This song is based on our memory verse and we will be singing it in our lower elementary classroom.
