The first session is entitled “Weakness is Strength” and focuses on 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 and Isaiah 40:28-31. The purpose of the session is for students to have their understanding of what it means to be strong upended. As Christ-followers, our strength comes from the Lord and only from the Lord.

Next Steps . . . 

  • Why is it so challenging to acknowledge our weakness before God and others?
  • In your own words, how do you put yourself in a position to take advantage of the perfect strength that God offers us?
  • What can I do as a parent to help you here?

This Weeks Lesson

Dear Parents,

This week in The Thread study, we looked at a new perspective. While we know that God’s grace is the only solution for our sin, it is important that we recognize God desires our obedience. 

In this lesson, titled “The Rise and Fall of Solomon,” students looked at God’s covenant with Solomon. Just as with generations before him, Solomon learned that God disciplines us when we are disobedient. By comparing Solomon’s story with the words of Jesus, students clearly saw that throughout time God has singularly desired our whole heart!

We looked at the following Scripture passages:

  • 1 Kings 1:28-30; 3:4-15; 9:1-9; 11:1-13
  • John 14:23-24

While the whole story of Solomon is fascinating, these passages will help you see the highlights that were studied. 

Next Steps . . .

During the week set aside a few moments to discuss these questions with your teenager:

  • So, this week you studied how God views obedience. What did you think about the fact that God only promised to bless them if they obeyed Him?
  • What did you think about Jesus’ explanation that obedience is rooted in love?
  • Based on that truth, can you better understand what parenting is like when we require you to obey us because we love you? 

I hope this resource is a useful tool for you and your student. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to contact me.
