If we don't teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to.

Because GOD IS ALWAYS RIGHT, I will do what He says.

Preparation: Let's talk about fish.
  • Do you know how fish breathe? (As they swim, the water moves through their gills and their body takes in the oxygen it needs.)
  • Do you know what happens when a fish stops swimming? (The water does not move through its gills and so it dies.)

Is swimming something fun for you to do? For a fish, swimming isn't just a fun activity; it is a part of who they are. For a fish, swimming is needed to stay alive; swimming is what a fish does because it's a fish.

Because of God's holy nature, it is impossible for Him to be anything less than perfect. If He were ever wrong, then He wouldn't be perfect. Some people try to act perfect. God is the only One who actually is!

Just like the fish must swim, God must always be right, or He isn't Holy and He isn't God.
Read the Bible Memory Verse below.

The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works." (Psalm 145:17 )
Sometimes bad things happen, and it's easy to doubt that God is really right all the time. Have you ever doubted that God is right when bad things happened to you? When are some times when you doubted if God was right?

God understands our doubts, questions, and confusion. When something bad happens, remember 2 things:
  1. People do wrong things, not God. God does not cause people to do bad things. Out of love, He made us with the ability to choose what we do (we are not His robots). However, He does promise to help us when people do bad things to us.
  2. Our Bible Memory Verse teaches that God is righteous in everything that He does. Some of what God does may not seem right at the moment, but He promises that the rightness of them will be shown to us later.

So, how do we know He's always right? Because He is Holy (perfect, pure, and clean), and His Holy nature makes it impossible for Him to ever be wrong.

Because God is Always Right, I know every decision is perfect and holy. It is His nature to be righteous-- He can't be anything else.

Let God know about any questions you have about His righteousness. Ask Him to show you how He is right in everything He does, and to trust Him.

You might need your parents to help you solve today's puzzle. You will see that God works out everything right the first time. We make mistakes; He makes no mistakes.

In the world that God has created, there is no room for Him to make mistakes.

INSTRUCTIONS: Solve the puzzle below by filling in the missing numbers. Click on the image for a printable version.
  • The missing numbers are all between 0 and 9.
  • The numbers in each row add up to totals to the right.
  • The numbers in each column add up to the totals along the bottom.
  • The diagonal lines also add up to the totals to the right.

When you were doing this puzzle, did you get frustrated and come up with the wrong number a couple of times? Did you know that God is right 100% of the time...not 98 or 99% of the time. He never says, "Oops."

A Sample Prayer to Conclude Your Time
Dear God,
We praise You for Your complete righteousness in every way. Your created laws are right all the time and provide for us sunlight, rain, air to breathe, a planet to sustain our life, and beauty to enjoy. Because of You, all of our physical needs can be met. We praise You for being morally right all the time, responding to us in ways that are best for us.

We thank You for teaching us in Your Word how our lives ought to be lived. Forgive us when we fail to live up to Your standards. Most importantly thank You for providing Jesus as the only way that we can be made righteous and have the promise of an eternity with You.

In Jesus' Name we pray, Amen.
