We are continuing our current unit in Children’s Ministry this week. We are learning that sin separates us from God because God is holy. Sin has broken our relationship with God. Our memory verse for this unit is from Isaiah 6:4. Isaiah has seen God on his throne and responds, “Then I said: Woe is me for I am ruined because I am a man of unclean lips and live among a people of unclean lips, and because my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of Armies.

Have you ever taken the time to revisit places of your past? How about to remember what God has done for you?

This week, we are in 1 Samuel 11 as the new king of Israel, Saul, gathers the tribes of Israel to defeat their enemy. Then they go to Gilgal, a place where they looked back on and remembered the power, greatness, and provision of God. Maybe this week, we can reflect on the great things that God has done—the ways we have seen His power, greatness, and provision. And as we do, let it grow our gratitude and hopefulness.
