Trusting in the Lord should be a daily practice for Christians. How can we, as teachers or parents, expect kids to trust in the Lord if they don't see us trusting?
No matter what life throws your way, 'Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding'. Teach this verse and learn it yourself. Keep it close.
Another way to help kids understand this is with prayer. Kids often pray for the things they want or the people they know, but do they pray for God to lead them and guide them?
We used this coloring sheet to go along with the King David Sunday school lesson.
Here is just one of the coloring pages we have available for FREE on this blog. If you're looking for something different, just scroll through the pages to see what you can find.
The coloring page below can be used as a plain sheet for coloring or it can be folded in half to allow the kids to write on the inside. It can be folded the opposite way for the kids to draw on the outside whichever they prefer.
For older kids, have them write some of the things in their life they need to be trusting God to help them with. Have them keep it under their pillow as a reminder to trust God to lead their lives.
Have prayer with your class and ask God to lead each child they way he would want them to go.
