Talking to God


Thank God for the variety and beauty of the seasons — bright flowers,
colorful leaves, sparkling snow and new buds.



Diving In


Hold an orange and shine a flashlight on the fruit as if it were the sun shining
on the earth. Point out where the sun may warm the earth and where it won't as
the orange is turned. Talk about how the people living in the Northern
Hemisphere pull out their sweaters and hats when those in the Southern
Hemisphere head to the beach.



Going Deeper

Even if people in different places have seasons at opposite times, the
seasons still come every year. You can count on them — just like you can
count on other things in nature to always be the same. The sun always rises in
the east, for example, and the stars annually shine in the same patterns in the
night sky. Read Psalm 74:16-17. Remember that God sets "all the boundaries
of the earth."



Talking to Each Other

- What season is your favorite? Why?

- What other consistent patterns have you noticed in nature?

- Why is it important that God faithfully causes the seasons and other things
to happen at their set times?

- What do these things teach you about God?
