Hey there! Today, we will talk about something cool - how to grow up and become a better person with God's help. It's like learning to ride a bike or play a new game. It might seem challenging initially, but you'll get good at it with practice and God's guidance!
1. Facing Our Mistakes:
Imagine you're playing a video game and missing a jump. What do you do? You try again, right? And you learn from your mistakes. It's the same with life. Sometimes, we make mistakes or do things that aren't so great.
In Romans 12:1-2, the Bible tells us that God wants us to learn from our mistakes and be the best we can be. It's like hitting the 'reset' button and starting fresh.
2. Making Good Changes:
You know how sometimes you need to change your strategy to win in games? In life, it's like that too. When we realize we've made a mistake, we can change our actions to do better.
The Bible gives us an excellent guide on how to live. It's like a manual for life. If we follow what it says, like being kind, honest, and loving, we'll grow up to be strong in our hearts and minds.
3. Helping Others:
Now, think about when you're good at a game and you help your friends get better too. It's a lot like that with God. When we grow and learn, we can help others.
Jesus teaches us in Matthew 7:1-5 that we should understand and work on our problems first to be better at helping our friends with theirs.
4. The Big Plan:
Everything we learn from the Bible is like pieces of a giant puzzle. When we put them together, they help us grow up to be strong, kind, and wise.
Just like a superhero training to save the day, we're training to be fantastic people who can do great things for others.
So, remember, it's okay to make mistakes, but it's essential to learn from them and try to do better next time. God's always there to help us, just like a guide in a game. And the best part? As we improve, we can also help our friends and family enhance!
