Growing as a Christian kid works a lot like how a tree grows. To have strong branches you need good roots.

Key Points:

  • We need a good root system so we can grow big and strong. Ephesians 3:17
  • The first root is faith. We need to be strong in our relationship with God.
  • The second root is family. Your parents love you and take care of you and they teach you right from wrong.
  • The third root is friends. Good friends are the ones that encourage you to honor God and to obey your parents.

Memory Verse:

Ephesians 3:17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.
