This Sunday we read Ecclesiastes 11:4-6.
4 Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.
5 As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
6 Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you
do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.
This chapter is characterised by the encouragement and the need to act speedily. In verse 6, we are encouraged, in all seasons and occasions, to do all good works speedily and continually. If there’s some good you can do or if you feel God calling you to act, don’t make excuses or procrastinate. Do it and do it now!
We encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson.
Consider building your conversation around these questions:
What one thing in your life brings you most joy?
What was your biggest take-out from Sunday’s video?
Here are some fun questions you can use to a spark conversation around the dinner table:
When do you feel lonely?
Which do you like better; eating at home or in restaurants?
What fact about you would surprise most of your friends?
What is your favourite silly thing to do?
God has given you unique gifts. How can you use them to make the world a better place?
What do you like about (not)/having siblings?
What is your favourite thing to do in summer?
