We’ve all seen and heard it, and probably commented on it—a child who seems to be continually preoccupied with his or her own self-interest. We might be tempted to sum up the child’s attitude as, “It’s all about me!” In the classroom, it can express itself in various forms—a child who always wants to be first to answer the question, or always wants to have things done his way. How can we help children (and ourselves, for that matter) biblically combat this “ME monster”? One way is to foster in our children and students an understanding of the true nature of the battle and provide them with the right weapons for fighting the battle.
To that end, here is a free lesson from our Midweek Bible curriculum titled Fight the Good Fight: A Study for Children on Persevering in Faith.
