This week we joined Zippy and Jordan to learn about how to choose good friends! We used the story of Daniel 1 to learn about choosing the right friends in every situation!
Need To Know: "I Will Choose Good Friends!"
Christ Connection: Daniel chose to obey God even when his enemies didn't want him to. God blessed Daniel and his friends. Daniel wasn't perfect, but he reminds us of someone who is. Jesus obeyed God perfectly and He always pleases God. We please God when we trust in Jesus.
Bible Story: Daniel Obeys God- Daniel 1
The king of Babylon marched to Jerusalem. He burned the city and broke the walls. He took many people back to Babylon.
Daniel and his three friends had to go to Babylon. The king's helper said, "You will learn to work for the king. You'll eat food only from the king's table." But God people were not to eat those foods. Daniel and his friends wanted to obey GOD.
So Daniel asked the guard, "Please, try this test: For 10 days, give us vegetables and water. Then see how we are." For 10 days, they ate only vegetables. They drank only water.
After 10 days, the guard looked at them. Daniel and his friends looked strong! So the guard let them eat during the 10 days. Daniel and his friends learned more and more.

Learning about God helps us make right choices, even when it's hard.
Hey Parents! Don't forget to ask your children about what they learned and if they had fun! We can't wait to see you next week as we learn about being a good example!
