We are concluding our unit on where God is this week. The question for this unit is, “Where is God? God is in all places at all times and is always with His people.” Our memory verse for this unit is Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV), ”The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing” Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

Have you ever heard the expression “The writing on the wall”? This week, we are in Daniel 5 as God writes his message on the wall! Daniel gets an opportunity to interpret the message due to his faithfulness to live as God wanted him to as an exile in Babylon. We will see that God humbled the proud king of Babylon by taking away his kingdom. In contrast, Jesus willingly humbled Himself by dying on the cross for our sin. God raised up Jesus and gave Him honor forever. When we humble ourselves and trust in Jesus, God will raise us up to enjoy Jesus in His kingdom forever.
