Review

Let’s review what we have learned so far, OK? Do you remember what we learned Monday and Tuesday? (wait to see if they will answer – if they answer correctly, clap your hands and say, “Yeh! That’s right! Good job!) We learned about minding our own business and having a good attitude, didn’t we!

Do you remember our Bible verses? Let’s go over them together:

Bible Verses

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; (1 Thess 4:11)

What does it mean to mind your own business? Do you remember the story about Joey going to the kitchen and listening when Mommy was scolding Billy? Was Joey minding his business when he did this? (shake head no and frown) No, Joey was not minding his business at all. Would you like it if your sister (or brother) came to listen when I was scolding you? (shake your head no) No, you would be embarrassed, wouldn’t you?

Are you minding your business if Mommy and Daddy are talking about something and you ask them what they are talking about? (shake your head no) No, you are not minding your own business. When people are not talking to you, you must mind your own business and not say anything. Being quiet is minding your business and that is being a good girl (or boy)!! Yeh!! (clap your hands and smile)

Mind Your Business Song
(sung to London Bridge)

Mind your business everyone
Everyone
Everyone
Mind your business everyone
God’s Word says so

If it does not concern me
Concern me
Concern me
If it does not concern me
I won’t listen

Good job!! I’m so glad that you remember what we learned! You are doing such a great job! Mommy and Daddy are very proud of you! (clap your hands)

What else did we learn? (wait to see if they remember then clap your hands if they do!) We learned about having a good attitude, didn’t we? Does whining show you have a good attitude? (shake your head no and frown) Does complaining show you have a good attitude? (shake your head no and frown) What does show that you have a good attitude? (wait for examples) Yes, helping Mommy do chores shows you have a great attitude! (clap your hands and smile) Playing with your little sister (or brother) so Mommy can fix dinner is showing that you have a great attitude! (clap your hands and smile) Letting baby have your favorite toy so she can stop crying is showing that you have a good attitude! (clap your hands and smile) Mommy thinks you’re doing a great job and she loves your good attitude! (clap your hands again)

Good Attitude Song
(sung to Bah Bah Black Sheep)

When everything went wrong
What did Ruth do?
She followed Naomi
And God too

She didn’t cry
She didn’t pout
No bad attitude
She always smiled
Because she knew
God would give her food

God saw Ruth smiling
So her heart He healed
He gave her food
From Boaz’s field

Mommy and Daddy are so happy that you have a good attitude! (clap your hands and smile) You are just like Ruth! Good job!! (clap your hands again)

Dear God…
I want to have a good attitude just like Ruth. Thank You for helping me to learn how to mind my own business.
Amen!

Coloring/Teaching
Let’s color a picture of Ruth. Ruth left her home to follow Naomi. She loved Naomi and wanted to follow Naomi’s God. Ruth loved God and this made her happy. See how Ruth is smiling? Ruth had a good attitude. Even though Ruth had lost everything, she still had a good attitude and God blessed her.

yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.(Psa 144:15b)

Story

Bobby liked it when Mommy and Daddy paid attention to him. Since Mary was born, Mommy and Daddy didn’t pay as much attention to him. (make a sad face) Bobby started whining so Mommy would look at him. After a while, Mommy did not listen to his whining but she ignored him.

When Mary cried, Mommy would go see her right away. So, Bobby pretended to cry so Mommy would come she him. Mommy came to see if he was hurt but she could tell that he was only prentending. After a while, Mommy stopped going to see if Bobby was O.K. (make a sad face)

When Daddy came home from work, Bobby told Daddy that Mommy did not love him because she would not come to see him when he cried. Daddy picked Bobby up and sat him in his lap. “Bobby,” said Daddy, “when you whine and cry for no reason, it is because you have a bad attitude. When you start to have a good attitude, Mommy will pay more attention to you.”

“How can I have a good attitude, Daddy?” asked Bobby. “Well, Bobby,” said Daddy, “ask Mommy if you can help her with Mary. Ask her if there is a chore she needs you to do. Smile at Mommy and give her hugs. Everyone likes to be around someone who smiles a lot and is a helper, too! People like being around those who have a good attitude.”

After supper, Bobby smiled at Mommy and asked her if he could help her with the dishes. Then he gave Mommy a BIG hug (hug yourself and smile)! Mommy said, “Oh, Bobby! I am so glad to have a helper like you! Thank you!” Bobby had a good attitude, didn’t he?

Dear God…
Help me to always have a good attitude. I know Jesus had a good attitude because He died for me. Thank You, Jesus!
Amen!
