Activity – How RU Doing
Draw a line on a sheet of paper. Place a 1 on the left end of the line, a 10 on the right, and a 5 in the middle. As kids arrive, ask them to pencil in their initials on the line.
Say: If your day was so awful you wish you'd slept through it, place your initials by the 1. If it was a great day and you wish you could repeat, put your initials by the 10. Place your initials anywhere on the line that shows how you feel today.

Verse Of The Day: Matthew 10:20
Read: Proverbs 3:5-6
Story: Continued from Yesterday. Today we are at the end of our look at the lives of two men in the Bible that the Lord used greatly. God worked in their lives, taught them a lot of wonderful things and used them to bless many other people. But the most important thing we can learn is that it was God who was doing the work, not Jonah and Philip. They were willing to be used (at least Jonah was eventually willing that is!) and God used them to bring many people to a knowledge of God.
When Jonah returned to Nineveh and preached God’s message people everywhere were repenting and turning from their sin. God used Jonah to save an entire city! Wow, could you imagine being used like that? God can still do that today. God chose to use Jonah in that way; maybe He wants to do something like that in our lives. Philip was used to share the good news with the Ethiopian who became saved. He went back to his country and no doubt shared the wonderful news with others. In fact, church historians believe that a church was established in Ethiopia and many other people were saved, all because Philip obeyed when God called. Philip went on to reach others with the gospel.
Let’s learn from these two men’s lives. God has a plan for us and He will use us if we will let Him. All we need to do is to ask Him what He would like for us to do. Then when He tells us, let’s just do it! It is an exciting life to follow Jesus. It is the best life you can possibly have. So when God says to “go”, let’s GO!
