Growing in Wisdom
Identifying Offenses and Learning to Choose God’s Way
Does your child ever struggle with anger? Lying? Complaining? Arguing? Tattling? Laziness? Children don’t automatically do the right thing. They need to be trained to look to the Bible for the guidelines to make wise choices. In Growing in Wisdom, your child will discover in Scripture 32 types of wrong behavior and their biblical consequences.
Some of the character traits covered:
- Anger contrasted with Self-control
- Tattling contrasted with Love
- Unkindness contrasted with Kindness
- Laziness contrasted with Diligence
- Disobedience contrasted with Obedience
- Inattentiveness contrasted with Attentiveness
- Selfishness contrasted with Generosity
- Boasting contrasted with Humility
- And many more!
This is a curriculum suggested for self-study for ages 8 to 13. With an open Bible, it is also highly profitable for parents to work through in conversation with children of those ages.
