Chapter OneGod's Word Is Light
God's Word is truth!
God's Word is light!
God's Word helps you
To do what's right!
Your word is like a lamp for my
feet and a light for my way.
How do you think God's Word helps you?
What has God's Word taught you to do?
Trust in God
It's God who makes the sun come up
And makes the moon shine bright.
You can trust in God each day ...
Morning, noon, and night!
Let everyone who trusts
you be happy.
How did you trust God today?
Did He help you in a special way?
You Are Special
No one on earth can take your place ...
Your big, bright eyes; your smiling face.
God made you special, head to toe,
So be yourself and let it show!
I praise you because you
made me in an amazing
and wonderful way.
What color did God make your eyes?
Did He make your two thumbs the very same size?
Kindness Is Good
A sprinkle here, a smidgen there,
A little kindness everywhere.
Try it, please; then watch and see
How many good things come to be.
Always do these things: Show
mercy to others; be kind,
humble, gentle, and patient.
Did you do something good today?
Did you give a little kindness away?
Forgive Each Other
Sometimes bumps and bruises
Can make us sort of mad!
God says we should still be kind.
Forgive and then be glad!
Be kind and loving to each
other. Forgive each other just
as God forgave you in Christ.
When someone says, "I'm sorry,"
do you say, "I forgive you"?
Do you know why that's the best thing to do?
