What Does God Say About Guidance?


Compassion Explorers, God is the greatest Guide in life you'll ever have! You can learn all about Him in the best guidebook there is: the Bible!

Pretend you are in the following situations. How could a guide help you?

  • You get separated from your class during a museum field trip.
  • You are visually impaired and you need to cross a street.
  • You are camping with your Scout troop and it's your turn to build the campfire.

Read or listen to Psalm 24:4-5 and discover how God can be your great Guide this school year.

  • Who in your life shows you God's ways (vs. 4)? Write names of family members, teachers, or others who show God's guidance to you.
  • What can you read to teach you God's truths (vs. 5)? What favorite story in the Bible guides you to learn God's truths? Write or draw about your favorite Bible story on a separate piece of paper.
  • How can you hope in Jesus to be your Guide every day (vs. 5)? Write or draw one activity you do every day at school where Jesus can guide you.

Dear Jesus,

I am glad You are my great Guide and I can count on You every day to help me make good choices. You care about me and are right here waiting for me to watch You lead the way! Please help me to grow in many ways this school year, but especially help me to listen to Your guidance and to keep my eyes on YOU! Please give Compassion-sponsored kids around the world hope and guidance as they live every day. I am thankful that kids everywhere can depend on You. 

In Your name, Amen.
