PATIENCE... waiting until later for what you want now.

This month, your child will learn all about PATIENCE! As a fruit of the Spirit, patience helps us display God's character. At its core, patience can be fueled by faith as we trust that God has something better for us in the future. It's not always easy but the Lord will give us strength to wait. All of May's Bible stories will focus on people who displayed patience or impatience. During times of waiting we all need to learn to "Play it Cool!"

May 5- When you think you can't wait, think twice. (Esau's Birthright)

May 12- When you think you can't wait, don't forget what's true. (The Golden Calf)

May 19- Trust God while you wait. (Hannah prays for a baby)

May 26- When you think you can't wait, don't lose your cool. (Proverbs 14:29)
